NEW ROUTE

After over 6 years of organising the Walkabout, I thought it would be a good idea to make a few changes, to re-fresh and add some more Walking to the Walkabout :)

My idea is we will walk to Brixton, which will enable us to really explore the back streets & parks, along the way, and then enjoy lunch wherever we like, then after lunch, some of us may like to chill out in Brockwell Park, or head to a pub if the weather's bad, or carry on Walking, taking a different route home... :)

PLEASE NOTE;
Bring Water & Vegan snacks for the Walk :)

Approximate times (may run later; updates will appear in the comments)[masked]pm
We'll gather outside Farringdon Station :)

12.45ish
We'll head down and get first train to Herne Hill to change there for Sydenham Hill.

From there, we will explore nature reserves, & slowly work our way through parks to Brockwell Park & from there it's only 15 minutes walk to Central Brixton :)

LOCAL PUBS ~>>

The DOGSTAR

Or other pubs include;
MARKET HOUSE, PRINCE ALBERT (All three on Coldharbour Lane, near Ms Cupcake)

Or, if the weather's nice, we'll chill out in...
BROCKWELL PARK

(Which is near two pubs, HOOTENNANY & EFFRA SOCIAL, or further afield, at Brixton Hill, there's THE WHITE HORSE *nice pub, good playlist*

Or, we can carry on enjoying exploring & walking, maybe take a different route TO THE RIVER :) & get tubes/buses home from there :)
