Walk of the Week


Every Monday we’ll pluck just one walk from the vast London Walks repertoire and put it centre stage.

You can check out the full schedule at www.walks.com.

But if you only take one walking tour this week, why not make it…



On the Road – Jack Kerouac in London

Saturday 13th October 10:45a.m Embankment Station

As Jack Kerouac’s On The Road finally reaches the big screen – 55 years after publication – London Walks' Adam follows in Kerouac’s London footsteps.



Fifty-five years ago, in the face of public outrage in the U.S. at the publication of his On the Road, Jack Kerouac adhered to the first rule of pyrotechnics. Having lit his fabulous yellow roman candle, he stood well back: in Tangier (with erstwhile Londoner William Burroughs), in Europe and, for a brief few days, London. His account of this stay can be found in the 1960 collection Lonesome Traveller


Here's a short film for the walk…
