Favorite and Memorable Walks...

Jump to last reply

My passion in Europe is, after trains, walking around European cities and the countryside. And in decades of travel I've developed by favorite walks I take every time I'm in a place and then there are some memorable walks that I may not have enjoyed but linger in my old mind like it were yesterday.

If you have some favorite and or memorable walks in Europe please share!

MY FAVORITE WALK

If I had to chose one favorite walk in Europe I'd have to chose:

LONDON - SOUTH BANK WALK
This walk in the heart of London along the broad pedestrian/bike esplanade along the Thames South Bank is by far my favorite. I usually start from the area of the Eye Over London Ferris Wheel by Westminster Bridge and head along the Thames to the Tate Modern Art Museum - maybe a mile and a half stroll.
I love this stroll because of the panoply of famous London landmarks you can see across the Thames and the parade of water craft - mostly tourist boats or pleasure craft - I also love the locals out walking here for exercise - the young teens skate boarding or rollerblading, etc.

There are plenty of benches - I especially love to picnic near the Charing Cross train bridge and be mesmerized by the parade of trains trundling into and out of the station.

The South Bank Walk - my favorite in all of Europe.
