The Line Modern Art Walk (Stratford to Greenwich) with optional warm-up down The Orbit Slide (world's longest tunnel slide)
Meet: 18:45 hours prompt
outside Stratford Station
, next to ‘Robert
’, a heritage locomotive displayed on the station forecourt (on the town side -- not the Westfield side) OR 18:00 hours (even more prompt)
outside the ArcelorMittal Orbit Slide
in the Olympic Park
(for those interested in sliding down this piece of artwork).
Distance: Up to 5 miles or 8.2 km, including a few stops on the DLR and ride over the Emirates Air Line Cable Car.
This walk walks "the Line
" -- London's first modern art walk. It seems to have missed an outing last summer and although I do not believe that there are any new pieces of art work this year, it makes for a very pleasant evening walk with lots to enjoy. As an added twist this year for anyone interested, we will have a pre-walk warm-up slide
down the Orbit Slide
(advancing booking required
(18:00-18:15 slot)). The sliders will then either meet the main group at Robert (or, if we are delayed, catch the group along the way with a slightly alternate start from the Orbit).
The walk initially follows the River Lea, takes a DLR journey, a flight on the Air Line and ends along the Thames with about a dozen pieces of art speckled along the way...More information and the instruction for the walk can be found here
Enjoy the walk (and the slide)!
