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 sixth section of the Capital Ring Walk is quite long at seven miles. However, there are plenty of cafes and public toilets along the route, ensuring we can refresh ourselves whilst enjoying the many sights available.
