Join Team Out and About and The Outsiders Club as we take one of the city’s most famous walks, The London Capital Ring Walk Challenge. We will be doing a section every month, always on the third Sunday of the month. We will meet at 11am for the walk and then finish off at a pub for lunch.
This ninth section of the Capital Ring walk is a particularly scenic route,as it includes the Nature Reserve at Paradise Fields Wetlands, the Grand Union Canal towpath, the view from the 84 metres high summit of Horsenden Hill, Horsenden Wood oak trees, Harrow-on-the-Hill and the school buildings of Harrow School.
There are plenty of cafes and public toilets along the route, ensuring we can refresh ourselves whilst enjoying the many sights available.
Description and walk difficulty
Much of this five and a half mile section is on level and firm ground, tarmac, pavements and grass. Some of the tracks may be muddy or slippy in wet weather and others can be uneven. There is a steep hill leading up both, Horsenden Hill and Harrow-on-the-Hill.
There are some steps, kissing gates and the only stile on the Capital Ring Walk.
