What we're about

Public Group

Welcome to London Explorers a walking social group aiming to do a wide range of guided walks across London and further afield exploring other fantastic British towns and countryside.

Most of our walks start at a convenient tube or railway station and aim to get the best deals on any group save tickets for trains and try when possible to look for free car parking giving you as many travel options as possible.

All our walks are well researched, leaving you free to relax and enjoy the lovely scenery or urban views in the company of other like-minded individuals and of course you will be keeping fit. Most walks end with a well-deserved pub stop with a strong social ethos.

Most of the London guides have done professional guiding courses such as the Islington and Clerkenwell Guiding Diploma or City of London Guiding Certificate, some have both or others even.

The walks are very varied from just a couple of miles covering historical sights to longer urban or country walks of over over ten miles and are either just a couple of hours or longer day trips mainly at the weekend but also some during the week or evening.

We are enthusiastic about photography and encourage photographs walking at a leisurely pace but also sometimes with harder faster and longer walks.

We are twined with another country hiking group Chiltern Explorers (http://www.meetup.com/Chiltern-Explorers/) and often do events together. Chiltern explorers is based to the west of London in the gorgeous Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and also does a wide range of weekends away to other UK National Parks and other AONBs.

Chiltern Explorers is unusual for many outdoor meetup groups in that it currently only arranges the walks and leaves the accommodation up to the members giving members the option to go on the days they want and stay according to their budget, many members also car share for trips away. The weekends have a good social atmosphere and comradery.

The London walks have covered such diverse subjects as Jack the Ripper, James Bond, Sherlock Holmes, Wren Churches, Fryscrapers and Walkie-Scorchies, London Parks and Canals amongst many other themed walks.

The country walks have covered the Chiltern and Surrey hills, the Seven Sisters and Beachy Head and the Lake District amongst many others.

I hope you decide to join us!
