Group walking along the Thames

Published: Tuesday, 7th May 2019

May is National Walking Month, so why not seize the opportunity to get outside and explore the sights across our borough.

Walking is a fantastic way to keep active and maintain a healthy heart as it is fun, flexible and free. Sometimes overlooked as a form of exercise, walking briskly can help you build stamina, burn excess calories and make your heart healthier.

The Royal Borough of Greenwich run Greenwich Get Walking, a healthy walks scheme throughout the borough, in partnership with Charlton Athletic Community Trust (CACT). The scheme can connect you with a wide range of free walking opportunities and is a relaxed way to meet people in the local area.

Greenwich Get Walking Walks are free and delivered by experienced guides - a perfect way to meet new people and get more active. There’s a walk every day of the week ranging from Oxleas Woods to Mottingham! We hope to see you at one soon.
