Tube Walk 150

Hello Tube Walkers,

Our Navigator Ewan is leaving the country next month, so we'd like to have one small Tube Walk before he goes. This will be the walk from St. Paul's to Bank that we've had to reschedule a couple of times this year but is definitely NOT cursed in any way...

I know some of you are shielding at home and some of you are not comfortable with going on public transport, so please don't feel obliged to come. However, if you're a regular Tube Walker and fancy it, do come along. This will be a one-off event and I'll re-start a more regular programme of walks when it's safer to do so (given the walk after this is from Stanmore...).

So: the next Tube Walk will be on Sunday 4th October at 2pm. We will be walking from St. Paul's to Bank.

Health-and-safety: please let me know if you would like to come. We probably won't be more than 6 people; if we are, we'll split into two groups. It'd be good to start more promptly than usual, so please aim for 2pm and we'll leave by 2.15 at the very latest. We probably won't end the walk in the pub, unless there's one with spacious outdoor seating. And I promise not to blow the whistle in anyone's face.

Best wishes for the Tube Walks of the future! We'll conquer that list sooner or later...

Tube Walk 150 - breaking news!

The weather forecast for Sunday has deterred all but the hardiest from thinking that it's in any way a good idea, so this walk has now been postponed!

We will, in fact, be walking from St. Paul's to Bank station on Sunday 22nd March. Meet at 2pm and so forth!

(The delay of a month is required for the Navigator to find his way to the other side of the world and back first.)

Tube Walk 150!

Great news for all - the 150th Tube Walk is less than a month away! Rather fittingly for such a notable occasion, we will be walking between two of the most iconic institutions in the City of London, from St. Paul's Cathedral to the Bank of England itself! Please remember to bring a bowler hat.

Sunday 9th February 2020
St.Paul's - Bank

Please congregate at St. Paul's station from 2pm for a prompt departure no later than 2.30, or there will not be time to feed the birds for tuppence a bag.

Tube Walk reminder!

Don't forget that there's an ambitious Tube Walk double bill coming up this Sunday! Here's the plan:

Sunday 17th November

Part One: St. James's Park to Westminster

Meet at St. James's Park from 1pm for a prompt departure no later than 1.30. After this leg of the jaunt, we'll get the tube up to St. John's Wood for

Part Two: St. John's Wood to Baker Street

Hope to see you there! And if you only feel like doing one part of the walk, let me know so I can accommodate your wishes (ie not lose you in a park)!

Tube Walks 148 and 149 - a saintly double bill!

The date for the next Tube Walk is Sunday 17th November, and for the first time in a while, it'll be a double bill. Here's the plan!

Part One: St. James's Park to Westminster

Meet at St. James's Park from 1pm for a prompt departure no later than 1.30. (Please note early start, so we don't have to finish the Tube Walks in the dark!) We will walk to Westminster, and then hop onto the Jubilee line and head four stops north for:

Part Two: St. John's Wood to Baker Street
(we'll probably start this one some time between 2.30 and 3)

And then we'll probably go to the pub.

If this sounds like logistical nonsense, no problem - you're welcome to just do one walk and ignore the other! Though if you only want to do the second walk, please let me know so I can make sure we don't lose you.

Hope to see you there!

Tube Walk 147

The next Tube Walk will take place on Sunday 20th October. We will be walking from Star Lane to West Ham. 15 years ago, when Tube Walks first began, Star Lane station did not even exist! Let's marvel at the passage of time together and celebrate this welcome addition to Newham.

Meet at Star Lane station from 2pm for a prompt start no later than 2.30. If you're coming, do let me know (even if you don't actually decide till the day); then we'll be sure not to leave without you!
