Overview

Walk the highlights of Central London's Green Parks with many waterside paths alongside lakes, canal and river. Primrose Hill at the start with it's panoramic view over the City, then across Regents Park, with a coffee stop at the Boating Lake Cafe. We join the Regents Canal to pretty Little Venice with it's many moored barges, to pass modern developments at Paddington. Lunchtime in the Paddington area (or Tyburnia) with its many green squares. Either bring sandwiches to eat in Norfolk Square Gardens - maybe near to saying 'Hello' to Paddington Bear!!  Or/And choose one of the many Cafes/Pubs close by in London Street for a drink or light lunch. We continue across Hyde Park alongside The Serpentine, skirting Green Park to walk alongside the lake of St James's Park, hopefully crossing Westminster Bridge to finish with a tea stop at The South Bank Centre Terrace Cafe, overlooking the Thames at dusk. Return from Waterloo Station. (may possibly divert to another station towards the end if the Westminster area is extremely crowded). Many dropout points.
