    For a first meetup 'D', this was very good! Lovely strolling along in the sunshine, not just exploring London, but finding out some facts about the surroundings as you went, from the things that were chipped into the conversation. All in all, an excellent way to spend the afternoon, topped off by a good old roast dinner! Look forward to the next one and getting to know the 'regulars' better!

    I agree with Charlene, the people were great, I especially enjoyed talking with Kathleen from NYC. However, there wasn't much to see in this particular part of London.

    Is the meeting place a Street? I'm struggling to locate this on Google Maps. Any chance we can have a more obvious meeting place or someone's number?

    • terence f.

      Nav I think I visited the statue a week ago so give me a buzz when you are in Trafalgar Square between the column and Whitehall. I will be across the road on an island beneath the statue. [masked] Terry Then we can wave to each other.

      Gilly. Don`t worry.....it`s gonna be glorious. Remember, no such thing as bad weather.....just bad clothes! See you Sunday!

    • diarmuid o.

      Agree - the forecast is actually for sunny spells :-)but the great thing about city exploring is that if it downpours we can find shelter and you can always hop on the tube to get an early seat at the Bedford Arms!

  • diarmuid o.

    I have now added up the streets that we will be walking
    - apologies that it is only a few days before the event.

    We will pass all of the Northern Line stations on route to Balham
    (ok - we only get within 50metres of Kennington!).

    Hopefully a few will bring camera's to capture sights and people along the route. many thanks + look forward to meeting everyone. D

    Could we have a bit more info on the route please?

    April 29, 2013

    • terence f.

      That does not seem to be the northern line: charing cross, embankment, waterloo, kennington is closer

      April 30, 2013

    • diarmuid o.

      Hi Terence - you are of course correct - my apologies. The walk that gave me the idea to start the MeetUp was when i walked from Tooting Bec to Trafalgar Square and as this was just for leisure i choose to walk north of the river for the last section. So i just repeated that in reply to Gilly. Now that its a MeetUp with a plan i will lay out the routes to more accurately follow the tUbe llines. That said this is all just for fun and to explore so might occasionally take artisitic licence re the route if it suits for time, interest or scenic purposes. As noted above - i'll get the walk plans up in a couple of weeks. Many thanks. D

    Sorry - can't make this one - it would be great if a programme of the walks was announced further in advance (i.e. 2-3 months)

    May 1, 2013

    • diarmuid o.

      Hi John

      May 1, 2013

    • diarmuid o.

      Hi John - you might just have missed it on the MeetUp site but there are walks planned for the rest of the year - its always the last Sunday of the month and always starting from Trafalgar Square. I'm away at the moment but will add up details walk plans in a couple of weeks time. Many thanks. D
