Embankment - Little Venice (walk)

  • January 26, 2014 · 10:00 AM
  • Embankment Tube station (near ticket office)

A lovely walk of about 8-9 miles by the River Thames and the Regent's Canal, from Embankment to Little Venice. This is a walk of 8-9 miles. If you want to leave the walk earlier you can leave at Limehouse Basin after 3 miles, Islington after 5 miles or Camden Lock after 6 miles.

This event is organised jointly with EuroClub (represented by Thomas Eros): Thomas will be leading the walk again this month (his photo is shown below).

Meet Thomas by the ticket office of the Embankment Tube Station between 10:00-10:15 am, for a prompt departure at 10.30am. We cannot wait for you if you are late, because it is not fair on the others to delay the walk

Note that the Northern and Bakerloo lines do not stop at Embankment at the moment - you can use the District/Circle lines, or walk from Charing Cross.

You can use the JourneyPlanner to plan your journey to the meeting place (please check for engineering works which may affect you):

We usually try to find a pub or cafe for a lunch break (if there are lots of us we will divide ourselves into smaller groups). Alternatively you may like to bring a sandwich with you to eat during the walk (you may not be allowed to eat this inside a pub or cafe).

Thomas' mobile number is [masked].

There is a £2 meetup charge for this event. Please pay Thomas when you see him. You will also need to bring enough cash for your Tube/train/bus tickets and meal/drinks.

Weather forecast for London:

The main walk should end by about 4pm (depending on the speed at which we walk, how long is required for the lunchtime break, and whether we lose the way).

      Jenny - the path is quite straightforward (following the river and then canal). It is similar to the first section of this map: https://maps.google.co...­ (only starting near Embankment instead of near Waterloo, and ending at Little Venice or earlier)
