Walk Report

London Parks Walk, Thursday 23rd July 2015
10 walkers, 7 miles - leader Susanne Waldschmidt
London LDWA is not too strong on culture and I only had 2 on the tour of the National Gallery. (I have done similar tours in the past and had a lot more).
However the alternative Wetherspoons mob crept out of hiding at 6pm and there was a respectable turnout of 10.
I guess most people know the Royal Parks well but still very pleasant and relaxing place to go for a Summer walk. And where better to finish than Wetherspoons.
