Walking in London @ Jubilee Hall
Jan 21 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm

An illustrated talk by Peter Aylmer. London is a great place for walkers, if you know where to look—and if you know what to look for, once you get there. Peter’s guidebook Walking in London, published by Cicerone Press, deliberately seeks out some of the 13,000 species that inhabit its parks and gardens, rivers and heaths—the London Wildlife Trust helped Peter put the guide together. But that diversity couldn’t be possible without a wide range of open spaces, and Peter will also tell of how Londoners created arguably the greenest large city on the planet, often in the face of opposition from the powerful.

Peter is chair of the London group of the Long Distance Walkers Association. He brings a wide variety of perspectives and comparisons to walking in London, having walked most of England’s National Trails and created his own walks from south to north of each of Wales, England and Scotland. He is also the author of the Cicerone guide Walking in Essex. Joint talk with EHHS
