Walk Tower Hamlets
Walk Tower Hamlets is our local health walk scheme. There are currently eight weekly walking groups across the borough – all are based at a local health centre or community centre. These walks typically last about 60 to 90 minutes, ending back at the centre, with some of the groups also exploring further afield with monthly walks using the DLR to get to alternative destinations.
A weekly health walk can be a good way to get regular exercise, meet new people and explore the borough. Don’t worry if you’re a beginner – all levels of walking ability are welcome and there’s a good chance you’ll make new friends as you walk together.
It’s best to contact the walk leader before your first walk, just to double-check the arrangements for meeting up.

If you'd like to join any of the groups, then it's always best to call the walk leader in advance of your first walk, so that they know to look out for you.
At your first walk, you'll need to complete a brief questionnaire to ensure that you're registered.
