London Walks information

BAEC runs a variety of London Walks courses with our experienced tutors Kate Boyle and Jill Finch, who are also qualified London Guides. Each term, you can explore a new part of London or re-visit areas while focusing on different aspects of the capital's history and architecture.

During the winter months and/or in case of national restrictions on outdoor meetings, 'virtual' classroom-based walks are organised at the Kentwood centre with Kate Boyle, or online with Jill Finch.

The maximum number of learners in each group is 12. We advise you to enrol early to secure your place.

Our students' wellbeing and safety is our prime concern and we follow national and local government's latest advice on social distancing and safety procedures. There may be occasions when the programmes need to be altered at short notice, for example if there are restrictions on group meetings or reduced availability of public transport.

Each walk lasts 2 hours, departing from an agreed meeting point and following a planned route that features the salient points of the session's theme. While the walks are not usually physically challenging, each route may include urban and/or rural roads and will take place in all weathers (except in extreme conditions, when it may be necessary to make alternative arrangements).

You should wear suitable clothing and footwear, including rainproof clothing and/or sun protection as appropriate.

If you would like to speak to a tutor about a particular course, let us know and we will arrange for the  teacher to contact you.
