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.
The first section of the Capital Ring Walk from Woolwich Tunnel to Falcon wood.
This is one of the longest sections of the Capital Ring but the bonus is that it has great contrasts, going
from the River Thames to Oxleas Meadow, one of the highest points in the area.
