The Line - wellbeing walks

What is The Line?
The Line is London’s first dedicated public art walk and features a wealth of wildlife and extraordinary local history. The route runs between Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford and The O2 in Greenwich, following the waterways and the line of the Greenwich Meridian. It is a place where everyone can explore art, nature, and heritage for free.

 

One Step at a Time is The Line’s ongoing programme of Wellbeing Walks.

Aiming to improve fitness and wellbeing, particularly following a period of isolation during the Covid-19 pandemic, these free guided walks explore the wildlife, art and heritage along The Line in Newham.

Come and join a friendly group of walkers in your local area. 

Each walk is completed at a gentle pace with regular pauses to sit, reflect and make conversation. We will make our way along the route for approximately 20-30 minutes before stopping for refreshments and returning to the start point. Walks run weekly on Thursday afternoons

Who can join

  • Over 18
  • Able to walk for 30 minutes (there are benches along the route and we will stop to look at things too)
  • Accompanied by your carer or support worker if you require one
