    Hiking In London, Sep-20

    A short walk packed with variety and fine views, bluebell woods in season, a pretty village and a short train journey

    Next event: http://www.senderismoenlondres.co.uk/events.html

    Length

    12.0km (7.5 miles), 3 hours 30 minutes. For the whole outing, including trains, sights and meals, allow 7 hours 30 minutes.

    Toughness

    6 out of 10.

    Being short in length, this walk makes a good, brisk, autumn or winter walk, with several ups and downs, although the walk is also delightful in bluebell season as the route passes through lots of bluebell woods during the morning. The route at the outset is steeply uphill, for a time following the North Downs Way, with views back over Otford and the valley, then going through Greenhill Wood, with a glimpse of Oak Hall, before heading north to Romney Street. You then have a steep descent to cross a former golf course for a short, steep ascent before dropping down to Shoreham village, for a late lunch at one of its four pubs or two tea rooms or vineyard.

  • Otford (Round Walk). 30/1/11.
    amib, Jan-11

    Originally, the shortest walk in Book 1 but what a delight! And only 30 minutes from London! Now, around 7.5 miles of walking, initially, along the North Downs Way, through woods and across undulating fields (can be muddy!) to lunch in Romney Street. After lunch, with views of 'The Shard' and Canary Wharf in the distance, it's more of the same before arriving in Shoreham. From there, the Darent Valley Path takes the walker back into Otford.

    (This walk would make an excellent introduction to country walking for the newcomer, though a few minor hills).
