Distinctive recycled glass pavement slabs set all along the routeJubilee Greenway

Gtr London

60 km / 37 miles
In 2012 Her Majesty The Queen celebrates 60 years as Sovereign and London will host the Olympic Games for the first time since 1948. To celebrate this the Jubilee Walkway Trust developed the concept of a new 37 mile (60km) Jubilee Greenway circling inner London.

The aim of the route, announced in November 2007, is to provide continuous, green and attractive walking and cycling to all nine London venues which hosted the Olympic Games, while connecting many of Londonís main visitor attractions, historic places, parks, open spaces, waterways and views and many major public transport hubs.

The Jubilee Greenway makes use of existing walking and cycling routes wherever possible beginning at Buckingham Palace and joining Green Park, Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens Royal Parks with Paddington Station and the Grand Union Canal at Little Venice. Following the Regents Canal through Camden the Jubilee Greenway then connects to East London through Victoria Park and the original Greenway path, passing London City Airport to reach the River Thames and the Woolwich Foot Tunnel. The Thames path then links via Greenwich and the South Bank to the original Jubilee Walkway at Tower Bridge and back to St Jamesí via Westminster. Sites at Westminster and Greenwich form World Heritage Sites. At Victoria Park there is a southern spur continuing on the Regent's Canal to Limehouse Basin.

The Jubilee Greenway is waymarked with distinctive recycled glass pavement slabs throughout its length. The Queen unveiled the first marker outside Buckingham Palace on 29th February 2012.

As a Diamond Jubilee initiative, it built on the established and original 14 mile (22km) Jubilee Walkway set up by the Trust in celebration of the Silver Jubilee in 1977 and enjoyed by an estimated 2 million people per year.
