Walking with Pokemon!

Walking with Pokemon!

Last summer I had quite a lot of fun wandering around London attempting to catch cute critters called Pokemon (with Pokemon Go.) I caught quite a lot of the original cohort just by walking everywhere when my phone had a teeny bit of battery. Well…today niantic brought out a whole new batch of smiley virtual reality animals, so I turned my app back on and attempted to catch a few on my walks to and from work. I was running…

Capital Ring – Section 7: Richmond Bridge to Osterley Lock

Capital Ring – Section 7: Richmond Bridge to Osterley Lock

This part of the Capital Ring meanders from Richmond Bridge to Osterley Lock, mostly along the Thames and the Union Canal.

We walked along here on a miserable grey day, and it was still lovely, so it must be GORGEOUS when the weather is more pleasant. TFL…

Capital Ring – Section 6: Wimbledon Park to Richmond Bridge

Capital Ring – Section 6: Wimbledon Park to Richmond Bridge

This is probably the most famous section of the Capital ring starting in Wimbledon and walking over to Richmond.

This walk is 7 miles (11.3km) long, so it…

Capital Ring – Section 5: Streatham to Wimbledon Park

Capital Ring – Section 5: Streatham to Wimbledon Park

This is another section of the 126km walk around London. This part starts in Streatham and heads North through Wandsworth to Wimbledon Park. I thought this section was pleasant (if a teeny bit boring…) as it winds its way through quite posh residential streets and parks. We had to wait for ages on a freezing platform waiting for a train to get to Streatham Common. So try to plan your route if you’re walking on Sundays, as you might have…
