The Lea Valley Walk

Step out and step back in time

Taking you all the way from Waltham Abbey to the Thames in east London, the Lea Valley Walk opens up a fascinating window on Britain’s past.

Along peaceful towpaths that were once busy with horses hauling barges, you get to see history at every turn. From the monks of Waltham Abbey changing the course of the river, through the Industrial Revolution, to post-war industrialization and London 2012’s regeneration, the whole story unfolds as you walk.

You can choose to walk the full distance in one, or take it in easy stages – the nearby railway runs parallel to the river, so it’s easy join or leave the walk at different points.
