5 Wonderful Wintry Walks That You Won’t Believe Are In London

Pull on your walking boots, pack up your galoshes, polish off a couple of trek bars and escape the kerfuffle of London life by heading out on an adventure down one of these wonderful wintry walks…

 

1. A canter with cattle around Osterley Park

If a walk amongst Charolais cattle, an 18th century garden and and a Great Meadow that has had only the brown cows to tend to it for years catches your fancy, then head to Osterley Park and House. You’ll find a grand driveway, Georgian mansion, swans gliding around the various lakes and a National Trust café for some light refreshment.

 

2. A winding walk towards the Wimbledon Windmill…

This is for those looking for a lively walk full of flying golf balls and the occasional Womble. The Windmill Tearooms is a great added incentive to catch up with the cantering horses with stuffed Wombles on the counters and ‘Stuff on Toast’ on the menu.

 

3. A bob along the bubbling Beverley Brook

It’s not always about the destination, the journey can be just as enchanting. Just like the oh-so-beautiful Beverley Brook that can lead you all the way to Richmond Park.

 

4. A royal march across the Royal Greenwich Park…

This Park provides not only the most majestic walk in London, but comes complete with a Royal Observatory, National Maritime Museum and you can even step across whole hemispheres over the historic Meridian Line.

 

5. Feeling wet and wild at the London Wetland Centre

Birds, meadows, otters, a sand martin bank and a peacock tower for panoramic views, the oft-forgotten Wetland Centre is definitely not just for children. Though you might be slightly too large to enter the Puddle Jumping Competitions this week…
