A really enjoyable walk starting across the City of London, going down historic Cable Street and following the Thames Path (where it can) to Canary Wharf. Safe, varied, direct and avoids the busiest roads for the most part. Numerous stops and shops throughout....

Sadly the Thames Path is very sporadic with diversions in place at Canary Wharf as a bridge is out, and Limehouse where there is a sink hole....

This route is OK, it weaves on and off the Thames path due to various sections being temporarily closed off. There are stairs on the route. It probably isn't the most direct route between the two places but this means there are extra stretches along the river....

I'd generally agree with the other reviewers that it's a pretty standard London Slow Ways route, but I might be a bit more enthusiastic - I really enjoyed watching the city change gradually. It really did happen bit by bit, and that was really fun to observe. I was really pleasantly surprised by this route, and would definitely recommend it....

Nice to see King Square Gardens and might as well detour through Fortune Street Park too, while you're there. Got to love London's pocket gardens - have a little sit if there's time....

Easy to navigate, past the old Moleman house on the corner of Mortimer Road (Google it!), across the canal, past where the all-drinks-are-99p bar used to be in Old Street, and all of a sudden you're in through the bankers' back door of Liverpool St Station. Memory lane!...

Good route, direct, follows fairly quiet, attractive back roads, and ignores the obvious direct route up the A10. Routes via de Beauvoir town, Hoxton, and Shoreditch. Plenty of refreshments on the way....

Direct and easy to follow along quieter city streets, this route won't take more than 15 minutes unless you get wildly distracted (which is easy)....

This is basically the same route as MonCan1 but with an extra stretch from Liverpool Street to Monument and passing through south Wapping rather than on the northside. It is worth checking out the reviews of that route for more opinions. As it stands the route to Monument is down very busy streets....

This is certainly nicer than what I would usually have done (gone down City Road to Old Street). The area near Liverpool Street is still a massive building site, and it was noisy, even on a Saturday morning....

It was a little hard to navigate with GPS due to the tall buildings so I didn't *quite* manage to do the exact route. It's paved all the way, although there is quite a lot of construction going on, which makes it sometimes hard to find dropped kerbs....

This close to central London, there tend to be two kinds of walk - the tourist-friendly one with major landmarks, and the backwater. This is definitely the backwater type, as it's mostly on smaller roads - though ironically does take in a short section of the A1. I enjoyed the architectural contrast between the glass office buildings at Liverpool Street and the 1960s residential flats dotted over the central section....

I walked this route from Liverpool Street to Bethnal Green. It is short and straightforward - I was able to memorise the route and walk it without any map (tho' I am familiar with the area). Despite its brevity it manages to include a covered market, a Hawksmoor church, the famous Brick Lane curry houses, plenty of graffiti, an urban farm and some parkland....
