Cudham Circular Walk

Gtr London

13 km / 8 miles
A rural route passing near to Down House, Darwin's home, and Downe village to which a diversion could be made. Passing near Biggin Hill airport on a ridgeline, it reaches the London LOOP coming into High Elms Country Park, finally ascending back to Cudham on field paths. One of the Bromley Circular Walks, several of which can be linked to make a much longer route, this route shares a start with the Berry's Green route. Part of the route coincides with the London LOOP.

Down was the home of Charles Darwin, where he wrote 'On the Origin of Species' and World Heritage Site status is being sought for this area. Full details, leaflets and mapping are available with free downloads on the 'Darwin's Landscape Laboratory' website.
