Celebrate National Walking Month and join one of TfL's 45 free guided walks across the capital this May

Enjoy spectacular views of London in bloom on one of Transport for London's (TfL's) 'Spring into Summer' free guided walks, on Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 May.

There are 45 free guided walks across the Capital, organised by Walk London and TfL, which explore London's hidden gems, famous landmarks, parks and canals. There is something to suit all ages and walking abilities, whether you fancy a short stroll or a challenging trek. Many of the walks are family friendly with Animal I-Spy in the City, a gentle stroll searching for dragons, lions and unicorns and Goodnight Mister Tom, inspired by the much loved book, particularly popular with children.

Visit to book your free place on a 'Spring into Summer' walk. All walks start and finish within easy reach of public transport.
