Welcome to the Ramblers Inner London Area website

The Ramblers is Britain's biggest charity working to promote walking. It exists to facilitate for the benefit of everyone, the enjoyment and discovery that walking outdoors can bring, and to promote respect for the life of the countryside.

The Inner London Area comprises nine groups located in London. It is just one of many Areas that make up the national organisation.

Although London may not seem like an obvious location for walkers, there are over 4,000 Ramblers members living here, making Inner London one of the most populous areas for walkers to live in the UK. The Thames Path, which runs through our Area, is the most walked path in the country!

As well as walking in our own area, including in the very heart of London, we also enjoy excursions in much of South East England, with groups regularly making trips to the Chilterns, South Downs, South Coast, Kent, Essex, Surrey, Hertfordshire, as well as further afield.

Inner London Area Walking Groups

Almost all our walks are accessible by public transport, be it mainline train or tube. The walks range in length from 2 to 20 miles, with most averaging around 8 to 10 miles. They mainly take place at weekends, when there are frequently over a dozen walks to chose from across the Area's groups!

Why not try one (or up to three) walks before deciding whether to Join.  All of our walks are listed to the left including short or leisurely walks and London walks.  For other walks we offer have a look at our Led walks page.
