Streets Ahead is the column from London Walks' Pen David Tucker…
"What London Walks would you recommend for children?"
The "walks for kids" question is one we're asked a lot. The wide-ranging answer usually goes something like this (this is how I put it in a recent email to someone who'd popped that very question):
I think another one that works for kids is the Historic Greenwich walk (it goes on Monday mornings). It of course starts with that wonderful boat ride, which is always fun. And Greenwich is so compact the walk down there is eezy peezy time-wise – and there's a great deal to see.
Ditto the Old Westminster Walk (which we do every Tuesday afternoon, every Thursday afternoon, every Saturday morning and every Sunday afternoon).
Accompanied children under the age of 15 go free on all London Walks
