We know it can seem daunting to come up with a route to lead, so we have compiled some links to walking routes that will help you get started if you'd like to lead a walk.
Saturday Walkers’ Club
Over 300 free-to-use public transport friendly walks in the South East, complete with directions, maps, and GPS data. Good instructions with walks in a variety of lengths, easily accessible from London.
Ramblers Routes is an online library of over 3,000 inspiring routes for walkers to follow, with several hundred around London and the South East.
Each route includes GPX data and detailed directions you can print out, so you won’t get lost! They also highlight points of interest to look out for along the way, and give advice on how to get to the starting point.
TfL walking routes, including the Capital Ring, London Loop
The TfL Walk London pages have details of the seven routes forming the Walk London Network, one of the largest walking networks of any city in the world - all specifically designed to be easily accessible by public transport.
Great for shorter/leisurely and mid-length/moderate pace walks closer to the city, good instructions and well signposted for the most part. Routes include:
National Trust Walks
The National Trust website has a library of walking routes. They tend to be quite short and might not be connected to public transport, but can give ideas for interesting areas to include in a longer walk.
Fancy Free Walks
Watch out as not all walks start/end at a station, but again could be used with an additional link to local stations
Surrey County Council
The Walking in Surrey's countryside pages have a collection of self-guided walks and details of the long-distance trails that run through the area.
The AA (Automobile Association)
Another to watch out as not all walks start/end at a station, but could be used with an additional link to local stations. Guessing they expect everyone using their site to be using a car!
