Londoners tend to think of themselves as hard cases who don’t breathe what they can’t see, but in case the skies clear long enough to actually take a walk, how about a 150 mile stroll around the entire city?
The London Loop is a circular trail that’s easy to reach by public transport, and can be walked in 24 segments. The tree-lined corridor of woodland greenery was created in the mid-1990s, but nobody I know seems to have heard of it. There’s a half-mile gap in it, where the river bisects the loop without a crossing point, but every circle has to start somewhere.
I have no intention whatsoever of looping the loop (a popular autumn pastime, apparently). I just thought you should know.
