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 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.

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).

We were looking to get out and do some walks in the countryside, but didn't know where to go. We're pleased we bought this book.

The format is very nice - it's thin and tall, and good for putting in a coat pocket or a rucksack. The thinness means that the directions are succinct, but they are pretty clear.

We've done three of the walks so far. All of them have been accessible, scenic and interesting. We're looking forward to doing more.

This is one of the best walking guides I have bought. It was a revelation to me to discover how many interesting walks there are in and around London - not somewhere I usually associate with walking. Very well written and well researched, it is full of useful information on how to get around, where to stop on the way and what to bring. It really made me want to get my walking boots on and get out.

This book tells you what you need to know if you want to embark on walking tours of the area. How to get there, how far the walk is and how difficult, places of interest, informative background notes, and easy to follow route maps. I should add that I'm a bit of a novice as a walker, it being something I've only recently taken up, so hardened ramblers may have a diferent view?
