Hi, I'm Ian and I'm the founder of Walk Run Cycle.

Thanks so much for being like me and wanting to really explore a city and see all those best bits and hidden gems that usually only the locals know about. 

All the routes in our apps have been created by real people, on the ground, who know the city inside out.

We've walked, run or cycled up and down checking out every possible route for you - we don't just string together the 5 main sights and the shortest route between them. After all, where's the fun in that!

We take you down the prettiest, most interesting streets instead - which might be slightly longer, but a lot more pleasant!

If you're visiting London and want some key walks and routes to show you all the best sights, you've come to the right place. How about a few alternative walking routes to get you off the beaten track? Yep, we've got those too. Quite simply we have created the best selection of walks to show you the highlights and hidden gems of London.

Feeling energetic but don’t know where to run or where is best during daytime or night-time? Perhaps you are in the middle of a training plan for a marathon next year! Well you’ll love our simple selection of 1.5km, 3km, 5km, 10km and 21km (half marathon) run routes in London.

If it' s a lovely sunny day you can really see so much more on the back of a bike. We have created some great cycle routes, perfect for the whole family (or the keen cyclist) to see the best parts of London. You will also find some bike routes through the lesser known areas such as Shoreditch, Hoxton, Chelsea and more! And always on the greenest, most pleasant bike paths or quietest roads wherever possible and using London's Santander Bike Hire scheme to make it very easy and cheap!

So I really hope you enjoy discovering London as much as we all did. And remember to send us your photos or leave comments on individual routes, we look at them all!

Please take care when following any routes - don't just look at your phone and walk into a canal or road! Also, obey any road signs or diversions as appropriate as road works can create diversions at any time.  Please don't start running unless you are sure about your fitness - check with your Doctor if in doubt.
