The Walking Group meets on the second Sunday of each month, usually at Charlton Station, at 10.00 in summertime and 10.30 during the winter; the walks are mostly within TfL travel zones. 

Our walks are mainly for ‘softies’ undertaken at a moderate pace to take into account the abilities of a range of walkers and usually less than 5 miles. Walkers are advised to bring bottled water and wear appropriate clothing for the weather – especially strong footwear. 

Walks are briefly described in the monthly emails so that walkers may decide if they are suitable for their ability and interests – this includes the travel plan, descriptions of the terrain, places of interest en route, availability of public toilets and places where take-away drinks and food may be purchased – we always end the walk at a cafe, pub or similar. 

You can check the calendar for details of future walks. If you would like to sign up to receive monthly emails or suggest some walks you know and love please contact Jill at:


We’ll meet as usual at 10.30 at Charlton Station.  We’ll take the Thameslink train to Blackfriars where we’ll stroll through The Inner and Middle Temple and out into the Strand.  Passing the Royal Courts of Justice and St Clement Danes church we’ll make our way to Covent Garden to take in the Christmas decorations, browse the stalls and sample some of the seasonal wares.  From here we can walk the short distance to Seven Dials to see their decorations or wander down to Trafalgar Square to see the tree, ending at St Martins in the Fields Cafe in the Crypt.
We can be fairly adaptable on our timings and route taking into consideration the weather and the group’s views on the day.
