The Saturday Rambling Group - The Saturday Strollers
We are a group of enthusiastic walkers who meet approximately once a month on a Saturday morning at 10am to go for a gentle stroll in the environs of London travelling to and from the walk venue by public transport. The walks are not strenuous, between 2 - 4 miles in length and often incorporate historic sites as we walk rural, park or waterside routes. The social aspect of the outings is as important to us as the exercise so we usually finish with lunch in a convenient hostelry at the end of our route.
There is no limit on the number of attendees nor any requirement to attend every outing. Just come when you want to gently exercise while enjoying aspects of green London in convivial company.
The dates and destinations of the nex three walks:
4th May - Literary Highgate with an option to visit one or both of the cemeteries (all walking will be downhill!)
1st June - The Isabella Plantation
29th June - An Islington Canal walk to the Queen Elizabeth Park
Further details will be available very soon.
