Walk part of the Jubilee Walkway in London on Wednesday 12 July 2017 to commemorate the man who thought of it

The walk in 2017 will start at theJubilee Walkway panel in the centre of Leicester Square.. Meet at 10.00 am for a 10.15 start

Please send an Email if you would like to be kept informed of the arrangements. The walk goes through St. James Park and Parliamnet Square to cross the river at Lambeth Bridge. It then goes along the South Bank all the way to the Millennium footbridge, passing the London Eye, National Theatre, and many other landmarks. The walk finishes at the north end of the Millennium Bridge, and those who wish can go to a local cafe for lunch..The total distance is 3.1 miles. We should finish around 12.20

There is a very detailed description of the route here

There is a useful Map showing the actual route on Google maps (but ignore their diversion to Buckingham Palace|)- this can be expanded to show all the street names. And there is another here

The Silver Jubilee Walkway, as it was known then, was originally laid down in 1977 as the main feature of the work of the Environmental Committee, set up by the London Celebrations for The Queen's Silver Jubilee, under the Chairmanship of Max Nicholson. Her Majesty The Queen opened it by unveiling a plaque on the South Bank Lion, on the night of the Thames fireworks celebrations on 9 June 1977.

On 12 July 2006, a number of people who knew Max commemorated his involvement with the Jubilee Walkway by walking the Northern Loop of the walkway on what would have been his 102nd birthday. On 12 July 2007 a slightly larger number of people walked a further section between Russell Square and Tate Modern. On 12 July 2008, we walked from St Pauls, along the South Bank past City Hall, across Tower Bridge, and through the Barbican to return to St. Pauls. In 2009, we walked the last section from St Pauls, along the South Bank to Lambeth Bridge, and then back to Leicester Square.

Since then, we have followed the same pattern: in 2010 we walked from Trafalgar Square to the Euston Road, in 2011 from the Euston Road to City Hall near Tower Bridge, and in 2012 from City Hall to St. Pauls, by way of Bank and the Barbican. The walk in 2013 started at City Hall, go along the South Bank to Lambeth Bridge, and then through Parliament Square to Trafalgar Square. And we have followed the same pattern in scudding years.
