Next Capital Ring Walk

Capital Ring Walk - West Ham to North Woolwich - Thursday, 20th June 2019


Distance: About 6.5 miles

Meet up at West Ham Station at 10.50 for a prompt 11.00 start. There are no toilets at this station. There is a small cafe for coffee opposite the Station (no toilets here either).

How to get there: Suggested route is Met Line to Finchley Road then Jubilee Line to West Ham. Approximate journey time 1 hour 2 minutes.

This section is considered the easiest on the Capital Ring, and is almost entirely on level tarmac paths and pavements. Starting from West Ham station we continue along The Greenway. Then the route carries on to Beckton, some former docks and travels alongside the River Thames to the foot tunnel at Woolwich. Points of interest are the University of East London Campus, Royal Albert and King George V Docks, Royal Victoria Gardens, a walk alongside the River Thames and the Woolwich Foot Tunnel.

A lovely way to finish this walk is to take a River Bus from Woolwich Arsenal to Westminster.

It is suggested you bring a snack or picnic as there are not many cafes on this point of the walk.
