‘The London Spiral’ Is A Walking Challenge Of Dizzying Proportions

Georgie Hoole Georgie Hoole - EXECUTIVE EDITOR

The London Spiral spirals from King’s Cross all the way to Gravesend in Kent, spanning over 250 miles.

Created by Tim Ingram-Smith, this gallant trek starts at King’s Cross station before spiralling anticlockwise in six large loops. The Spiral ends at the start of the Thames Estuary in Gravesend, 24 miles east of the capital.

Should anyone take on this almighty ramble, they’ll pass through parks, woodlands, residential streets, as well as a few London attractions. All walks of life, you might say.

The London Spiral starts at King’s Cross station.

You can divide the spiral into stages; each of which should only take an afternoon. During each stroll, you’ll be taken through an interesting part of the city — particularly as the route isn’t conventional and doesn’t follow usual paths and roads.

Tim completed the walk last year. He’s written about his journey over on the London Spiral Walk blog. Check it out to find details about the route and follow in Tim’s footsteps.
