The Best Walks In London

London is a city bustling with energy and excitement but can often leave its visitors longing for a peaceful escape. We have highlighted some of the best walks in London for those looking for a unique perspective and serene respite.


Regent's Canal Walk

A hidden gem that offers a peaceful escape from the noise of central London. Starting at Little Venice, this route takes you along the tranquil Regent's Canal, passing through Camden and King's Cross, ending at Limehouse Basin. Along the way, you will pass by charming houseboats and historic industrial buildings that have been transformed into modern cafes and restaurants. The Michelin Star awarded Lyle’s in Shoreditch is a must visit for those passing by.


Hyde Park Serpentine Walk

Beginning at the illustrious Serpentine Galleries, a stroll through one of London’s largest parks is a must. This route takes you through lush greenery and around the picturesque Serpentine Lake. As you walk, you will discover the various sculptures and art installations that have made Hyde Park the landmark that it is today. Reward yourself with a stop by the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park for a luxurious spa experience, perfect for those seeking a little extra relaxation.


Chelsea Physic Garden 

The Chelsea Physic Garden on the bank of the River Thames is home to over 5,000 plant species and medicinal herbs. From the garden, take a leisurely stroll along the Thames Path, enjoying the clear views of the river and the lush greenery. The nearby Ivy Chelsea Garden, a highly-rated restaurant that offers fine dining in a sophisticated ambiance, is an ideal setting for indulgence after your walk.


Richmond Park Isabella Plantation Walk

Starting at Roehampton Gate, a stroll through one of London's largest and most beautiful parks takes you through the stunning Isabella Plantation, a woodland garden famous for its azaleas and rhododendrons. After your quiet walk, we recommend visiting the Michelin-starred restaurant, The Dysart Petersham, for a delectable dining experience.


Greenwich Park Walk

As you walk along this idyllic path, you are able to take in the sight of various historic buildings and monuments that gracefully make up the landscape, offering an undeniable charm and a sense of heritage. For maximum comfort, we recommend a visit to The Greenwich Spa for a luxurious and well-deserved moment of relaxation and rejuvenation.


London's affluent neighbourhoods offer hidden gems and lesser-known walking routes that provide a unique perspective of the city. Whether you're looking for a quiet stroll through a park or a tranquil walk along a canal, these routes offer an often needed escape from the city's hustle and bustle.
