In and Around London... The Big Football Kick-Off Part One

Monday is mute on the London Walks Blog (well, almost mute) – because Monday is the day when we post five images captured in and around London by London Walks Guides, London Walkers and Facebook friends. Collated on a theme or an area, if you've got some great shots of our capital and want to join in send your pictures to the usual address.

On Saturday, the Premier League season began. London’s big football clubs – Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal, Crystal Palace, West Ham and Fulham – started the quest to depose champions Manchester United and bring the crown back to London.

On the same day the Extra Preliminary Round of the world’s greatest knock-out club competition also began: the F.A Cup.

While the millionaires of the Premier League strutted their expensive stuff, the smallest teams in the country began a journey that will end at Wembley on Saturday 17th May 2014 in the F.A Cup Final…

A famous footballing name on the Piccadilly Line…

…but this was the scene on the northbound train at around 2.15p.m.

Many others were heading the other way. About 60,000 of them at the final count.

Our destination was far away from the headlines…

… as Cockfosters took on Hanwell Town in the Extra Preliminary Round of the famous F.A Cup.

A London Walk costs £10 – £8 concession. To join a London Walk, simply meet your guide at the designated tube station at the appointed time. Details of all London Walks can be found at
