We will end close to the DLR Station (West India Quay) and also Canary Wharf (Jubilee Line) tube station which is only 5 minutes further walk away.

    Walking and talking are two of life's free social activities. From Mile End tube station (Central Line) we take a leisurely freestyle Sunday afternoon stroll along the banks of the Canal to Victoria Park, stroll around the park, and then return to via the Canal to Canary Wharf. before 5.00 pm.

  • After this walk we will joining Ken's Events for the FREE JAZZ FESTIVAL at CANARY WHARF!!  You can RSVP for that event by Clicking HERE......RSVP HERE.

    Walking is along paths only. No special shoes or walking gear required. Dress appropriately for weather conditions.

  • PLAN B - Walking events should always be fun and have a Plan B - If the weather is wet, walking in the rain is no fun, therefore we may 1) reschedule this walk, or 2) carry on with the walk and dispense with the halfway sandwich break.

  • Check the event on Sunday morning for the latest weather update. Final decision will be taken at 11am.

    I do not attend many of Ken's events but when I do attend I enjoy his walks. Some of the members of the group are really nice people from different backgrounds.

    Well said Paul I second that I stood there with flag for half hour plus all the walk x I don't get paid former members think about that

    I am flabbergasted at the negative comments re this event. It's customary for most meet ups and not just Kens to depart 15-20 mins after the arranged departure time to allow for late arrivals. I arrived at 2pm and another of Kens reps was there with a flag clearly showing the meeting point. We were going on a leisurely stroll on a nice day. What on earth is the rush? We are hardly trying to get to the Harrods sale etc. So Ken was a few minutes late, its no big deal. The rest of us had a most enjoyable walk and a excellent night at the Jazz Festival. So I would like to thank Ken for organising the day.

    Ken turned up twenty minutes or so late for this event and I didn't hear any explanation or apology given, not impressed so didn't join in this walk

      Very bad manners. I too gave it a miss after waiting too long. Three of us set off and enjoyed our walk along the Regents Canal very much, ending up at the jazz festival. Count me out of Ken's walks, events, etc
