There are five walks in Kensington and Chelsea that run all year round (some with exception of bank holidays). The walks are all free of charge and open to all - they are suitable for all fitness levels and we particularly encourage beginners to join in.
Please wear suitable shoes as it can get muddy, and please bring a raincoat. You may also want to bring a small amount of money for a drink at the end of the walk. The five walks are:
Explore the quieter walkways of North Kensington, Meet by the bench in the entrance of Sainsbury’s car park Ladbroke Grove, London W10 5AA
Enjoy this beautiful park in the heart of London, Meet outside the Holland Park Café, Holland Park, Ilchester Place, London W8 6LU
Meet: Brompton Road at the main entrance to the Cemetery
Meet: King’s Arms Gate, Kensington Gardens
Walk along the river to this historical park and back. Meeting Point: Pavement area beside Cadogan Pier at the junction of Chelsea Embankment and Albert Bridge, London
The walks are led by trained volunteer leaders. There is a leader at the front of the group and, at the very back, 'a back marker' leader ensures that no one is left behind. Walkers are encouraged to walk at a brisk pace, the emphasis however, is on the walkers' brisk pace, not the leaders'.

The Health Walks project is organised by the Walking Alliance, comprised of representatives from the Dalgarno SRB, African Peoples Link, Open Age, Notting Hill Housing Trust, Kensington and Chelsea PCT and the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea Leisure Services.
