JUST THE FACTS

London’s the double nucleus of London and Westminter. But it’s also “the city of 100 villages.” That fact of facts is one of the reasons this is the most livable major city in the world.

The London Walks facts on the ground are that we explore any number of the 100 villages. And often.

1. One of them – Rotherhithe (Brunel’s London) – seven days a week.

2. Some of them – Hampstead and Little Venice – several times a week.

3. Some of them – Kensington and Soho – a couple of times a week.

4. Many of them – Greenwich, Marylebone, Chelsea, Bloomsbury, “Somewhere Else” London, A Village in Piccadilly, Knightsbridge, Undiscovered London, Camden Town, Highgate, Darkest Victorian London, London’s Secret Village – once a week.

5. Others are rarer blooms.* We run them only once or twice a year. You’ll find them in the Tour du Jour and Special Walks Menus. Or use the www.walks.com search engine. *For example, Islington, Fitzrovia, Kennington, Highbury, Brook Green, Vauxhall, St. John’s Wood, Walworth, Denmark Hill & Camberwell, etc.

Notes: I’m painting with a broad brush here. I’ve set out approximately how often these walks take place. Inevitably, with some of the walks there’s variation from season to season. Soho, for example, normally takes place twice a week in the summer but only once a week in the winter. Or, take Little Venice: it runs three times a week in our summer season but an “abridged” three times a week in our winter season. I.E., Little Venice takes place every Wednesday, every Saturday and every Sunday in the summer. In the winter it’s the same pattern except for the Wednesday walk: in the winter season the Little Venice Wednesday walk hibernates in December, January and February.

And it’s also worth bearing in mind that in quite a few instances there’ll be more than one walk in any given village. The links I’ve provided here link just to one of them. To see the full menu of walks in any given village it’s best to use the site’s search engine: just type in the name of the village and the search engine will do the rest, bring up the full panopoly of London Walks for any given London village.
