WEDNESDAY 24 APRIL: HIGHGATE CEMETERY TOUR AND LINEAR WALK TO BAKER ST(5.5 MILES)

The morning Cemetery tour is fully booked.  Joining instructions have been sent by email.

For the afternoon walk meet at 13.45 outside the cemetery gates in Swain’s Lane. If you are joining us just for the walk, the cemetery gates are about 25 minutes walk from Highgate underground station or about 20 minutes from Archway underground station.

Very varied walk, taking us through Hampstead Heath and including the view from Parliament Hill fields, then through Belsize Park to Primrose Hill and Regent’s Park ending at Baker Street Station. Most of the walk is on made paths or pavement but there is a section on the Heath which may be muddy so walking shoes are recommended. There are some steep hilly sections on the walk. If you wish to make the walk shorter, note we will be passing Hampstead Heath overground and Belsize Park underground stations along the way.  Leader Chris.
