London Villages

We are now planning our spring and summer programme for next year. Details will follow in the coming months.
We will sorely miss Peter Moore who sadly passed away recently, a popular walk leader and valued colleague. We send our condolences to Gill and their sons.

These walks always attract around a hundred or more participants every time. They are extremely popular.
But now we need some more walk leaders to keep this group going.
If you have an interest in parts of London and are prepared to give it a go, there is plenty of practical support available.
Repeating previous walks always proves popular. You may like to refresh them or make a few changes.
If you can help, please contact Rosemary Read, the Group Contact

The aim of this group is to explore either some of the individual villages that became swallowed up in the metropolis (e.g. Highgate, Dulwich, Walthamstow), or to follow themes (e.g. the John Nash Route, Legal London, the East End).  The format is a walk punctuated with stops where the leader will talk about the salient features of the area, such as its history, architecture, connections etc.  All members of LALG are welcome on our walks, but as we are limited by the logistics of a large group using public transport, applications are taken on a strictly “first come” basis.

Our walks are no longer than 5 miles, and include a break for coffee, with toilet facilities, and options for lunch – sometimes the whole group may eat together but more often members are free to choose their own venue, though the leader will offer suggestions.  Members may bring a packed lunch if they prefer. 

We do not require members to stay with the group throughout the duration of the trip, as some may prefer a shorter walk than that offered, and others may wish to stay on in London afterwards.  If leaving early, please ensure you inform the leader of your intentions.

We use public transport, and usually aim to complete the walk within the “off-peak” period.  For the times we travel, Railcards may be used but Network cards are invalid. For those without an appropriate railcard, a “group” fare, giving equivalent discounts, is available for 3 or more travelling together. This must include the return journey.

Details of future walks can be found in the Group Events window.

When booking please confirm LALG membership, your email address and, ideally, a mobile contact number.

The Group Contact has general information about the group only.
