Walking in London: Doing the maps

As a child, arriving at Paddington Station was the most exciting part of any trip to London. Brunel’s majestic roof, the movement, the noise and all that space was the essence of the city. It promised so much.

This memory has been at the back of my mind while developing the next edition of Central London Footways – a network of quiet and interesting streets for London walks.

Like most people arriving in the capital by train, my family’s impulse was to dash straight for the Tube. But, what if we had continued the journey on foot, to see the city unfold and feel the life of its streets? Would we have arrived at our destination happier, healthier and with a greater connection and understanding of the city?

At Footways, we’re convinced more can be done to integrate rail travel (the most sustainable form of transport for longer distances) with walking (the ultimate human-powered mobility).
