Spitalfields Walk and Picnic

Sunday stroll across central and east London - 7km

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The first half of the walk will take us from Waterloo alongside the south bank then across the city of London. We will pause in Spitalfields to have a picnic lunch. People can visit the Sunday market and listen to the music.

Then we will head to Bethnal Green where we can visit St John's Church. From there, we can go to the Gallery café and relax on the outside lawn:

    great to meet and see such a nice guys as you... I enjoyed walking and chatting with the most part of you and I actually hope to spend more time with those I didn't talk to as long as I would... I have worked out my English while knowing new and cool places...
    probably I few breaks during the walk to access a bath, drink some water, have a quick rest or not get anyone lost would be advisable...
