Free Things to Do in London: Walks

I love to walk, and London is the perfect place for it. With so many big attractions and beautiful side streets, exploring on foot is one of the most rewarding free things to do in London.

15. Walk Along the Thames

Walking along the Thames is a great way to get a feel for the city and see some of the most important landmarks.

From the Houses of Parliament to the London Eye and Tower Bridge, there’s no shortage of sights to take in on a stroll along the river.

My favorite stretch of the Thames Path is the one from Hammersmith to Chiswick. I’ve also published a free self-guided Thames walk in London if you want a longer route.

16. Walk Along Regent’s Canal

London also has beautiful canals. It’s worth taking a canal walkthrough Maida Vale, Little Venice, Camden, and King’s Cross to take in the colorful boats and views along the way.

You even get a free glimpse of the animals at the zoo as you go, so it’s another great free thing to do in London.

17. Walk down the King’s Road

Walking down the King’s Road from Sloane Square to Parson’s Green is another great way to spend a morning or afternoon. There’s great window shopping en route, and the colorful side streets are fun to explore.

18. Walk across Millennium Bridge

It’s a short one, but strolling across the Millennium Bridge from Tate Modern to St Paul’s Cathedral is another great walk. It has ideal vantage points of both buildings as you go, not to mention fantastic river views.

19. Meander through the Mews

I love a good London mews street, and the city center has no shortage. One of my top free things to do in London is to wander through the mews in Kensington, South Kensington, Notting Hill, and other London neighborhoods.

20. Walk in Search of Blue Plaques

London also has plenty of blue plaques on buildings where famous people once lived. Walking around areas like Bloomsbury and Hampstead to spot blue plaques is a fun way to spend an afternoon.

21. Walk Everywhere

In fact, walking everywhere in London is a great way to spend time. I’ve written a lot of free self-guided London walking toursthat will take you all over the city on foot.
