The London skyline

If you have been missing central London in lockdown, you can still grab a glimpse of it on a local walk.

Clamber across the wide expanses of Richmond Park to Sawyers Hill and on a clear day, you can see the city gleaming in the distance. Or take a stroll around Wimbledon Village, making your way to Marryat Road – it’s quite magical as many London landmarks come into view.

Inspiring Views Walk

As you’d expect from the name, the Inspiring Views art project offers several gorgeous viewpoints in the Surrey Hills – which inspired sculptural seating areas and poetry along the route.



Battersea Park

Battersea Park makes for great strolling territory with its riverside location and diverse range of areas, from large open green spaces to the festival gardens with its café and the romantic Old English Garden.

A walk along Battersea Park’s riverside, from Albert Bridge to Chelsea Bridge, allows views inwards of the parks’ varied spaces and outwards to the liveliness of the Thames. Enjoy a golden hour walk for sunset views and watch as the properties and skyline north of the river twinkle into action.

Leith Hill

A walk best timed for the clearest of days, Leith Hill makes for a fantastic woodland adventure that’ll certainly get hearts pumping.

Designated both an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a Site of Special Scientific Interest, the choice of paths to take, abundance of wildlife and striking views atop the hill make a visit here a truly wholesome experience.

The view from the tower’s top provides scenes of London to the north and the English Channel to the south – there’s lots to spot through the binoculars from the highest point in south-east England!
