Format: Paperback
This handy, pocket-sized book is packed full of information on walks in the south-east, all accessible by public transport. There are walks for everybody, ranging from two-day hikes on the South Downs Way through to short but picturesque walks and rainy-day rambles ending at country pubs for lunch.
Routes are clearly explained in detail: there's no getting lost, and the book is a must for all seasons.

There are some lovely walks here ,but there is more research needed for each walk in terms of finding the best route. For example, the walk at Boxhill takes you along a ghastly section of dual carriageway for about 10 minutes when there is a public footpath that avoids most of it. In addition, on reaching the summit of Boxhill, it takes you on a route that avoids the beauty spot and and viewing point of Boxhill itself. Great shame! I've found a couple of the other walks to be similar in not taking the best route.

Still, some fabulous walks and I've found the instructions on teh routes easy to follow and very accurate.

This really is the best present we ever had. There is a walk for every mood and every season- we did have to make a spreadsheet to sort the details about length, ease, travelling time to get there, saturdays/ Sundays Seasons when cafes and stately homes would be shut- but we are nerds like this. We have had a fabulous 2 years working our way through the walks, and we are going to rewalk our favourites.

It is a rare walk when we don't meet someone else using the book and raving over it. There are great views and sites of interest on every walk , both long and short- it is a few years since it was published , so you might want to phone ahead to check the pubs and inns are serving on the day you go. Numbers are given in the book.

FINALLY!!! An easy to follow, fun and informative book on London walks. And you don't have to have a car to do the walks as they are all accessible by public transport. With this little slimline gem I've discovered walks in inner London I had no idea existed.

There are many good things about this book: the walks go through genuinely lovely countryside, all start and finish as railway stations and include suggested lunch stops. However, the walks feel like they need an additional check in places - on each of the walks I have been on there have been points where we got lost (and encountered others using the same book who were also lost).

The directions simply are not as clear as they could be. Every walk I've been on has had a degree of ambiguity and I usually get slightly lost on every walk. Admittedly I don't have the best sense of direction but the directions should be straightforward enough for that not to matter. I've used the Time Out walks on a number of occasions without encountering similar difficulties so would definitely recommend one of those books instead.

I bought this along with the TimeOut Country Walks Vol 2 and found this to be far superior. It has many wonderful walks, is very informative and really entices you to go out on walks! It is very comprehensive but doesn't overload you with pointless information, provides you with a general overview of the walk and has interesting facts about the areas in which your walk takes place, there are historical tidbits here and there and other useful information regarding stop off points for food/drinks etc.

I have gone on a walk within a day of receiving this and found the map and directions very easy to follow. Overall I am very impressed with the guide book and find myself always coming back to the Rough Guide!

Best for people who live in London rather than those on short visits as only 7 of the 33 walks are in the centre of London: 5 of those are in the Hampstead/Camden/Hackney area and the other two in Richmond. Very clearly laid out book with plenty of detail for each walk.
