Needs a location

£5.00

SCENIC 9.5 MILE CIRCULAR COUNTRYSIDE WALK.
Give up the London's city streets for a day and breathe some fresh air. Improve your overall fitness levels, whilst chatting to new people during a countryside walk in Royal Windsor, Eton and the surrounding area. Stay later after the walk and continue the socialising in a pub in Windsor.

Join us for an approximately 9.5 mile circular walk, which will in addition take in a few of Windsor's famous streets and also a section of the Thames Path, Dornay lake (the 2012 Olympic rowing venue) and the Jubilee River. Please note that this walk is primarily a green coutryside walk rather than a guided tourist walk in the town. The walk itself is expected to take approx 4.5 hours, inclusive of a 30 minute picnic break. You may decide to use any additional freetime before your return to London, for sightseeing. Or arrive early prior to the start of the walk for additional sightseeing time in the town.

We will start the walk at Windsor and Eton Central Station at 1pm. However some members may be leaving London together on the same train, with the aim of getting 1/3 group discount on the train ticket. An offpeak day return fare (without discount) is £12.30 or £8.20 with discount.
If you wish to take advantage of the 1/3 group discount on rail tickets, meet at Paddington station at 11.15am.

If anyone prefers instead to travel from London Waterloo, you will arrive at Windsor and Eton Riverside Station (which is only 10 minutes walk from the starting point of the event). However please note there will be NO host at London Waterloo Station. However there will be a host at London Paddington station at 11.15am until 11.40am.

RISKS: Please dress appropriately for weather conditions and carry a bottle of water and necessary medication. You need to be moderately fit for this walk and be able to walk for four miles without a break. In these walks we use; pavements, cross busy roads, public parkland, towpaths alongside water, other public paths, rights of way, bridlepaths, country lanes and other established paths and tracks through woodland, bush and countryside. Please only wear good sturdy shoes, preferably walking boots and take care as surfaces may be uneven, tree roots may protrude, there may be low overhanging branches and some paths are also used by joggers and cyclists and sometimes cars (country lanes). Some tracks may be muddy and slippery. On occasion wild,domestic and farm animals may also encountered. If you require insurance for these walks then you must arrange this yourself.

As availability of toilets cannot be guaranteed en route, please ensure you arrive in good time in order to use facilities before the start.

Unfortunately no dogs and children (under the age of 18) are permitted on these walks.
