The Capital Ring Walk is a circular route around London that is divided into 15 easy-to-walk sections between Woolwich and Becton District Park. Overall, the Capital Ring covers 78 miles of open space, nature reserves and more.
This winter we will be walking the first five sections as part of our WI Winter Walks. Members, family and friends can join us for all the stages or drop in on individual walks as they prefer.
Stage 1 of the Capital Ring Walk takes us from the Woolwich Foot Tunnel to Falconwood. Along the way we will see the Thames Barrier, Maryon Park, Charlton House, Shooters Hill and Sevendroog Castle.
