To celebrate National Walking Month, we are running short Tuesday after-work and Friday lunchtime walks every week in May in conjunction with the City of London and Living Streets, to highlight the Hidden City.

The lunchtime walks are all on Fridays and run from 1pm to 1.30pm starting and ending at the corner of Bucklersbury and Walbrook, outside the Bloomberg Building (Bank Exit 8).

The Tuesday evening walks start at 5.45pm from different locations.

The City of London is a great place for walking with narrow alleys, high level walkways and quiet backstreets connecting quiet gardens, world heritage buildings, modern architectural gems and The Thames Path.
