The Triple - Three Walks This Thursday

DC Editor Adam writes…



As coincidence would have it, my first Thursday of 2020, like my first of both 2017 & 2018, is due to be a Triple – three London Walks tours in one day. Here's how I blogged about it back in 2017…



It's January and, once again, thoughts turn to fitness and shedding a few pounds after the Christmas binge.

Luckily, my job as a tour guide has a built-in fitness plan.

Thursday is usually my busy day and today was no exception.

The day starts with a brisk quarter mile chasing a nine-year-old on a scooter on the school run…




… and from there it's another quarter mile to the tube station. An easy half mile before the day has even started.


The first of today's three walking tours was Inside Covent Garden which, by my reckoning, clocked up some 1,700 steps…



At Covent Garden tube I used the steps…



Confession: I walked down NOT up!

Alighting at Hyde Park Corner I hopped a Sadiq Cycle to Kensington (1.5 miles), snapping this shot along the way (it was the perfect winter day for walking)…



Then it was on to the Kensington walk, which broke the 2,000 steps barrier…




Another Sadiq Cycle back to Hyde Park Corner (another 1.5 miles)…



… in brisk wintry conditions…



Then on foot from Hyde Park Corner to Tower Hill via the West End and along the river, my favourite "commute" of the week.

The final tour was Jack the Ripper, at 1.4 miles and 2,900+ steps the longest of the day…




Bringing my total for the day 34,000+, just over 16 miles covered!
