#London Walker Query From @janetll69 - How Long Is A #LondonWalk? #StepCount #Fitness #Walking

DC Editor Adam writes…


Lovey to hear from friend of London Walks Janet L in Texas yesterday. Hi Janet!

Janet had a query about the distance covered on London Walks tours. As a keen walker she was particularly interested in the longest walk.








Well Janet, I'll put that question to my London Walks colleagues over the course of the winter and post back here when they get back to me.

In the meantime, I've been measuring the steps on my own tours and Karen has been measuring her tours too, and here are the results so far…

Inside Covent Garden is a short one, less than a mile…




Join Inside Covent Garden on Thursdays at 10am meet at Covent Garden tube.


Old Westminster covers a mile-and-a-half…






Legal London covers a little more ground…




Legal London goes on Mondays and Wednesdays and Fridays


Like Inside Covent Garden the BM Highlights tour is another of the shorter tours in terms of distance…





The British Museum Walk is on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 2.15pm.


A Village in Piccadilly nudges just over the mile mark…



A Village in Piccadilly goes on Mondays at 2.30pm.


My occasional jaunt around the pubs of Seven Dials just breaks the mile barrier…




And now for three tours that NOT normally associated with fitness (!)…

Ghosts of the Old City



Ghosts of the Old City is on Tuesdays and Saturdays at 7.30pm.


Then there's Rock'n'Roll London



Rock'n'Roll London is on Fridays at 2pm. At 1.7 miles it's my longest London Walks tour in terms of distance but that means you can have fish & chips at Poppies in Soho after the tour safe in the knowledge that you've earned it! Click HERE for my review of Poppies



… and Jack the Ripper





Jack the Ripper goes every night at 7.30pm. Meet at Tower Hill tube.

Finally there's Old Kensington


Old Kensington goes on Thursdays and Saturdays at 2pm.


Thanks for the question Janet! Hope this goes some way to being a rough guide on step counts.


London Walkers, if you want to share your own step count get in touch via Twitter, Facebook or at the usual address.


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 www.walks.com.
