Explore East London

We sometimes like walking just for the sake of it. But more often that not, we have a destination in mind. After all, a walk is a journey, and with a well-planned journey there’s plenty to see along the way.

But, we hear you cry, why walk in East London? Surely there are better places to walk? Well, that’s a matter of opinion. Admittedly, if you’re looking for rugged coastline, mountainous climbs or moorland treks, then of course you wouldn’t start here. But we can offer oodles of green spaces, miles of waterside walks and urban adventures galore – all within a relatively small, accessible area.

Here are some of our favourite areas to walk but let us know about your favourite walks, so that we can share them with others.


Explore East London"One should always have a definite objective, in a walk as in life – it is so much more satisfying to reach a target by personal effort than to wander aimlessly."
