This blog is part of the ‘Londoner’s Guide’ blog series to help students navigate the big city. With the weather improving, we have put together a short guide of local walking and running routes, to help you explore London whilst getting some exercise!

Queen Elizbeth Olympic Park

Here at Loughborough University London, we are fortunate enough to be located on the beautiful Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. Set across hundreds of acres, there’s lots of trails and routes to explore at the Park.

Inner City Oasis

Inner City Oasis is a 5.7 mile (13,000-step) route located near King’s Park, London, England. This route has an elevation gain of about 91.8 ft and the route passes a lovely canal with barges, horse paddocks and picnic areas!


There a number of different walking/running routes for you to explore through Hackney’s Parks and Open Spaces. The routes vary in lengths so there is something for everyone. If you are looking for a mainly flat routes, this one is for you!

St James’s Park

Why not get in some sight-seeing on your walk/run? Whilst this route is slightly longer (11.6 miles), you will pass a number of London’s must-see attractions, including the Tower of London, The Shard, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace and much more!
