From picturesque towpath and woodland walks in the heart of the city to get-away-from-it-all weekend hikes through the Chilterns and South Downs, this new guide is the indispensable companion for Londoners who aren't afraid to get their boots muddy (and visitors who want to go beyond the obvious sights). The book describes forty walks, all within an hour's train journey of the capital, and all accompanied by detailed route maps and evocative descriptions of sights encountered en route -- from Iron Age hill forts to stately homes -- as well as highlighting the best cafes and pubs to break your journey.
