Route description


London has arisen in the Thames Delta, in the middle of a marshland barely 5 to 10 meters above sea level. One mustn’t go far to observe that geography beautifully and clearly in the cityscape: from Parliament Hill at Hampstead Heath or the Royal Observatory in Greenwich Park, one overlooks the Thames Valley, the whole city is there at your feet. But the - in some places quite steep – valley walls, and the surrounding hills, offer more wide panoramas of the city and its suburbs in Surrey, Essex and Hertfordshire. We connect all this sometimes surprising, always impressive views on the city through a 160 km hiking trail. The London City Views Ring Walk leads through large greens and commons, over hill tops and forgotten viaducts, by ancient villages in the city. Behind every corner is a new discovery, and all points on the trail are easily reached by subway, overground or bus. An ideal way to get to know this fascinating city!
