As a keen London walker I was disappointed to have missed Walk to Work Day last week. However with spate of good weather recently I have been walking my full morning route from London Bridge to St Pancras every day.
I am lucky that my journey takes me along the Thames past the Golden Hinde, Clink Prison museum and Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre. I then stroll over the Millennium bridge with the best view in London as I approach St Paul’s Cathedral.
I have often suspected that it is often quicker to walk than to go by underground, and this has been confirmed by the BBC website. In central London there are 109 journeys between Tube stations that are quicker to walk (taking into account time spent waiting for trains).
