  • Swanley to Sevenoaks on the River Darent

    Lugar por decidir

    "People doing what they truly love, and to the best of their abilities, brings magic to the world, and that's just what the world needs", and we do love hiking right? Exercise, a jolly and a visit to a country pub, what's not to love? A new route, courtesy of Viewranger! Less than an hour from central London this is the end of a great section down the river Darent, it actually starts in Dartford and some of our core members did that last year in the spring, we've waited a while to get back to the rest! From the first half It promises to be a beautiful route following the River Darent, so fairly flat, through open fields wooded paths and farmland. A hill shows somewhere on the elevation but only 100m. We don't hike with more than 25 people, normally with a handful of core and returning members. For us the emphasis is on the social aspect as much as the fitness and enjoyment of nature, you can expect to learn the name of everyone else on the hike, and we ALWAYS finish at a pub! :) MEET TIME AND PLACE: Swanley station 11.36AM Drivers please be there at 11.15 to ensure you have time to park etc etc. Trains from Victoria This should you the cheapest route: Buy a return ticket to SEVENOAKS from Victoria, changing at Bromley and getting off at Swanley on the outbound journey where the walk starts. Other routes and rail fares are available. 10.55 London Victoria 11.11 Bromley South Change and get 11.22 Bromley South 11.36 Arrive at Swanley The walk finishes at DUNTON GREEN and we will have a drink for an hour or more before heading off. We will probably finish at around 5.30pm but timings are not guarnteed, and if you have evening plans in London please do not come. I will meet everyone at SWANLEY, if you would like to mingle on the train arrive promptly at the station, so you can get a seat as soon the train starts boarding and sit in the last carriage of the train nearest the ticket barriers. Smile at anyone with hiking boots on and see if they are on the same trip - alternatively I will do intro's at Swanley. If you are a hiker based in London we recommend you get a Network Railcard. This gives you a third off all travel in the railcard zone. Distance: 8 miles As I have an injury we will now finish at Dunton Green, better Beer Gardens, so no loss! Please note we may also be going a little slower than usual. Please still buy your return ticket to Sevenoaks as that's what works for the two different lines we are getting. Walking Time: 4 hours approx, excluding lunch Lunch: 1 hour, there is a pub half way on the map. Please bring Sandwiches just in case it has closed or they don't do food. Cost: £5.00 pay on the day Free to core members on the text list Difficulty level: 7/10, not short, you need to be in good physical fitness to join this hike. Things to bring: Sandwiches for lunch.

  • Vege/Vegan Saturday Social at Vegan Express Tooting

    vegan express

    Lesser known fact, the London Hiking Empire grew out of an environmental engagement project and I've been vegetarian for 26 years. I discovered early on that there are not many hikers who don't care about the environment, it kind of goes together right? and I know that there are a lot that are vegetarian or vegan. No worries if your not, this is still a hiking group primarily but this meet is a Saturday Social lunch for those who are either vege/vegan or are serious about reducing their meat intake. This is also to celebrate the fact that this bit of London has finally got it's own vegan restaurant, Vegan Express.A friend invited me recently and I love the simple yet modern setting, I can't wait to give it another go! It's always lovely to meet more people more locally and this area has lacked a plant based restaurant for years, so I really would like to spread the word on this place. Please do join us if you can! ............................................................................................................ Please show up as close as possible to 14.00 as we will be ordering and eating together shortly afterwards.

  • £3, STAGE 2 RIVER WALK REROUTE Richmond to Kingston SLOW/MEDIUM PACE

    Recovery Walk MEDIUM/SLOW PACE Please read the whole text. Hi Folks, When we did stage 1 of the river walk on Friday we found it was really hard going and there is a lot of flooding in places so it's quite likely parts of the route are impassable. We are therefore going to do a similar stretch tomorrow in a different location from Richmond to Kingston instead as that has got a gravel tow path most of the way. I would still wear boots as as there are a lot of puddles out there although the forecast for tomorrow looks relativity good . Meet out side Richmond station 11.00am outside the shops that are just to the left of the exit as you walk out of the station. 5.5m aprox same slow/medium pace Wear Boots Bring the right cash Things to bring: WATER!- at least 1 litre Wear layers/water proofs suitable for the weather on the day, hiking boots or shoes Evening Plans Please don't come if you want to be back in time for any "evening plans", we will not be back in time and you will annoy me by asking if we will be back in time. please don't do it!

  • £3, The Arun River Valley, Stage 1, Pulborough to Aberley SLOW/MEDIUM PACE

    Recovery Walk MEDIUM/SLOW PACE Please read the whole text. Hi All, as some of you know I suffered what is colloquially known as a slipped disc at Christmas and this will be my first outing since. I am hanging out to get some exercise, so at my birthday last week I tabled the idea of a two stage walk down the river at Stage 1 (Easter Friday) From Pulborough to Amberley (this event) aprox[masked] miles, no half way pub Bring food as the one at the end will not have a kitchen open when we arrive and a couple of days later Stage 2 (Easter Sunday) Amberley to Arundel (6-7 miles, with a pub half way where we'll stop for a break) We'll stop at the Swan at the end as well for food/drinks Walking time: I don't normally walk this slow so it's hard to say! but I'm guessing at a max of 4 hours walking time for each stage These will be recovery/training walks. A slow paced short walk suitable for those who have also just recovered from an injury, or maybe for other reasons would enjoy a slower paced walk. If you are one of my standard hikers seeking a standard hike you might not want to come unless you fancy a stroll, (come with a massive hangover)? Our normal guidance is you need to be able to run 100meters for the bus, I can't do this at the mo so you only need to be able to run 15meters! This will be a walk, more of a stroll than a hike, we'll probably be going about 1.5 – 2mph, to a standard paced hiker that is very slow. However we will need to get there so if you still need to be fairly confident of your ability to get to the other end! (I definitely can not carry you!) In case someone needs to carry me I am bringing Piyal and a small number of good hiking friends, I'm keeping the group small (Expect 7-10 people, RSVP's will be spread over three groups), but we have a few spare places so do sign up if you'd like to join. Less walking does after all mean more time in the bar. These are lovely walks, they follow the lovely Arun River across water meadows and through a Valley which runs in to the South Downs hills. The villages are quaint and the countryside beautiful, there is a random little castle at Amberley and will detour down the drive to have a look, and there are lovely country pubs at the end of both stretches, at the end of the Arun stretch the historic Arundel castle looms high on the hill above you as you walk into town. Meet Time 1: 11:00am Meeting Point 1: London Victoria Overland station, At the bench inside the station next to the "The Beer House" Pub. This is behind the information stand at the platform 2-7 end of the station. If you don't know Victoria well, it's a very big station, leave a spare 10 minutes to find the meeting point. Meeting Point 2: Pulborough Station Train arrives at 12.49. No waiting at the second meeting point. Please state in the comments if you plan to meet us there. Distance:[masked] miles aprox Walking Time: 4 hrs End time: No fixed end time it's a full day out. Difficulty: 5 10, flat /slow hike Walk Finishes at: Amberley Returning to: London Victoria Meetup Cost: £3.00 Train is around £22.00 using a group discount. I will put people into groups at the meeting point. Pay on the day Bring the right cash, you won't be able to use a card. Things to bring: WATER!- at least 1 litre Wear layers/water proofs suitable for the weather on the day, hiking boots or shoes Evening Plans Please don't come if you want to be back in time for any "evening plans", we will not be back in time and you will annoy me by asking if we will be back in time. please don't do it! Go and annoy Graham or Geoff or Pash or Gary or Mischa, or anyone else but not me. I bite!
