Walking is free, reliable, and offers a positive impact towards people’s health, and TfL is making many improvements to help make London a city that is easier and more pleasurable to enjoy on foot."
The first section of the walk, beginning at Banstead Station, passes a number of points of interest including Warren Farm, Nonsuch Park and the Bourne Hall Park, before taking in the scenery inspired Pre-Raphaelite painters, overhanging willows and the gentle curve of the River Hogsmill.
