  • Lee Valley

Our staffs’ favourite stomps!

Stepping out into spring couldn’t be easier with the sun finally making an appearance! It’s easy to stick to the same old routes and we want to help you explore new ground in the Lee Valley this  #NationalWalkingMonth. Hear from some of our team members about their favourite routes so you can plan your next walk out.

Matt, Events Manager

“One of my favourite routes is Fishers Green Foray. As a keen cyclist this route can be taken either by foot or bike, and perfect for those with limited cycling fitness. There are some nice pub stops along the way and you can visit Lee Valley White Water Centre – which now has a handy bike service station if you are cycling the route.”


Pas, Sport Development Officer

“I’m a regular runner at the Gunpowder Park parkrun, having completed over 60 runs, but it wasn’t until I volunteered on a LifeWalk that I discovered the wonderful wet woodland area. It has board walks and bird hides and I was amazed how different, tranquil and beautiful this section of the park looks and how I had never found it before. Totally stunning.”

Sophie, Senior Events Manager

“Although I don’t have a set route that I walk, the paths around River Lee Country Park  that lead to Lee Valley White Water Centre are great for buggies and the little ones, plus you can pick up a coffee on the way back. We also love feeding the ducks and swans along Waltons Walk.”

“My favourite walking route is Monks and Meadows. This route takes you through Waltham Abbey Gardens and Cornmill Meadows which gives off a mystical vibe plus you might see grazing cows during the summer months. The route takes you round the field and to Hooks Marsh where you loop back round to walk along the river. Keep an eye out for waterfowl and the birds flitting from tree to tree.”
