Join our fun, friendly and free walks around the City and further afield, led by an experienced and knowledgeable guide.

Walking is one of the healthiest ways to keep active and has proven benefits for both physical and mental wellbeing. Our walks are a great way to meet friendly, like-minded people aged 50+ 

We run walks suited to all abilities:

1) Every Tuesday, 10.30-11.30: very gentle walk especially aimed at those who need to gain confidence and improve mobility. We walk for 30-40 minutes at a slow pace and always end with tea and coffee at a local cafe.

Meet at 10.25 outside the main entrance to Golden Lane Leisure Centre, Fann Street

2) First Saturday of the month, 11am-12 noon: City Churchyards walk. This walk, at a slightly more moderate pace, explores the hidden churches, alleyways and green spaces of the square mile, revealing the stories they can tell us.

Meet at 10.55 outside St Pauls Tube Station (Panyer Alley, Cafe Nero)

3) History Walks. Each month we have a walk on a Thursday afternoon and another on a Sunday morning. These walks last 90 minutes - 2 hours and explore many fascinating parts of the square mile and its environs, from Bloomsbury to Docklands.

Dates and meeting points vary. Click here to find out details of the next walk.

Square Mile Health Walks is a Ramblers Wellbeing Walks scheme. You can simply turn up to one of our walks, or if you prefer you can register here

We also run walks every Wednesday in partnership with Maggies at Barts Hospital, especially for people living with or having treatment for cancer. To learn more, speak to staff at Maggies.
