Walk Details

Follow the links below to maps and directions for each segment of the London Loop.

These walks follow the London LOOP published on the Transport for London website*.

Foster started her walk in East London, on the south side of the Thames in Erith. She then circled the city clockwise over the course of 15 days.


Each day's walk ranged between 8-1/2 and 14 miles. 

After 15 days of walking, the journey ended once again in East London, this time on the north side of the river in Purfleet.

Along the way the majority of walks were within the boundaries of the corporation of London but were still defined by big sky & rolling hills, fields and forests. There was industrial wilderness and wilderness wilderness as well as many horses and hay bales. There was contemporary architecture, the commuter belt suburbs and any number of ancient buildings and monuments to see. And for all the people who live in this grand conurbation, there weren't very many around (in fact, there were more to be found on the last day than in the other 14 walks combined!)


If you want to learn what a magnificent city this is, these walks are the way to do it.  

The links below will open a PDF document from TFL that provides details of the walk, including a map and directions.
