If you're in london and you want to go walking, then this is the book to get. Twenty eight different walks around the place. some are in the centre are some are in rather remote places very far on the outskirts. the latter contain an awful lot of woodland.
the book contains details of ten walks described as short and easy. thirteen described as moderately challening. and five really long ones for those who really want a challenge.
the shortest is three miles and the longest is eight miles.
each walk takes up two to three pages, and has a map with your route highlighted in yellow, a short description of the walk and the area, a photo or two from it, and written directions for you to follow. The vast majority are very easy to follow and although the directions can seema little vague at times on others the maps are very easy to read and follow so you shouldn't have any problems.
The book also contains maps of london showing where each walk starts, a tube map an index and a section saying where to go for further information.
I've had this book for eight years and I've still not had the time to do all the walks in it. Those I have done have shown me fascinating sights in the centre I'd not noticed before, and introduced me to remarkable landscapes out in the countryside. You could be forgiven for forgetting you were in london when doing the latter.
en essential volume for the serious walker and highly recommended
