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 eleventh section of he City Ring Walk passes through many green spaces and ancient woodlands on firm pavements and paths.
There are cafes available along the route and limited public toilet availability.
Description and walk difficulty
The walk is mainly level but there some steep ups and downs and rough ground, especially at the end towards Highgate station. This may be difficult for wheelchairs and buggies but it can be avoided by taking a parallel route.
Interesting things to see along the way include the lake in Brent Park, once a duck decoy, the statue of ‘La Delivrance’ at Finchley Road, Hampstead Garden Suburb dating from 1907, the distinctive
East Finchley Underground station opened in 1939 with its famous archer statue and the three woods – Cherry Tree, Highgate and Queen’s Wood – all remnants of the ancient forest of Middlesex.
