SOCIAL EVENTS and WALKS IN LONDON.

All of our social events are in London venues.

All of our walks end in a bar or restaurant booked for our group.

Do you like to BREATHE FRESH AIR? Do you want to IMPROVE YOUR FITNESS LEVELS? Do you like GREEN WALKS in the COUNTRYSIDE? Do you prefer walks in PARKS by LAKES, CANALS, RIVERS, rather than through busy city streets?

Do you want to see new SECRET PLACES in London, places that you might not otherwise have reason to visit?

Do you like to SOCIALISE in a PUB or RESTAURANT after every walk?

If you answered YES to any of the above then this group is the right one for you.

EVERYONE IS WELCOME TO JOIN KEN'S EVENTS, a friendly meetup group (Over 21,000 Members) mainly featuring WALKS in all the green parts of London (in places you have probably never heard of) and surrounding countryside that always end with a PUB SOCIAL!! Change your social life (and health) dramatically for the better!!
