All About Our Discovery Walking Groups in London & Further Afield

Discovery Walking Groups In London

People Join the London Discovery Walking Group for all sorts of reasons, some to get fit, others to be shown new places, some in preparation for a walking holiday … however all of our Discovery Walking Group love to get outdoors.

The group attracts a wide range of people, some local to north London, some from further afield, typically aged mid 30’s up. Many join the group to escape ‘Indoor’ London at weekends but also to see some great scenery and meet likeminded people who also have an interest in the great outdoors.

Who comes to the Discovery Walking Groups?

We are a fun social group, many of the walkers also take the Nordic Walking Classes, though you don’t need to be a Nordic Walker to join the Discovery Walking Group.

Numbers vary but typically there are 12 to 15 people on any of the Discovery Walks.

The Discovery Walking Group Saturday Walk

A typical ‘One/half Day’ Discovery Walking Group, run approximately once every other month, will be taken by Johanna & the team to one of London’s many beautiful open outdoor spaces such as:

  • Alexandra Palace Park & Locality
  • Other North London open spaces: Hampstead, Highgate, Queens Wood and further afield

These ‘In London’ Discovery Walks are normally organised for a Saturday.

Distance vary from 7-15 miles (11-24km).

What Else Do I Need To Know About The Discovery Walking Groups?

Johanna Green’s Discovery Walking Group welcomes people of all fitness and experience levels, we design the walks to be accessible whether you are relatively new to Discovery Walking or you have been trekking and hiking all of your life. We do ask that you are a regular ‘walker’ so that you are able to keep up with the group. Have a chat with Johanna if you are unsure.

Having said that there are a few necessities when it comes to going out for a few hours walking,

From a comfort and safety point of view it is really important to make sure you have the right clothing and equipment so that you are safe and enjoy the experience.

The Discovery Walks are part of the formal class timetables (excluding the ‘Discovery Weekend Walks’) but we do ask that you formally register for any of the Discovery Walking Groups walks so that we know who to expect and who to contact should there be a need to do so.

Longer Walks are not generally suited to the very young. However, in keeping with the Family Boot Camp, and due to popular demand, Johanna does plan to incorporate some Family Discovery Walks into the Programme.
