Celebrate the Jubilee Greenway
Using existing walking routes where possible, the route starts at Buckingham Palace before heading through Green Park, Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens. It then passes Paddington station before joining the Regent's Canal at Little Venice, along which walkers can connect all the way to east London.
The greenway crosses under the Thames via the Woolwich Foot Tunnel, before returning to central London past Greenwich, Tower Bridge, the South Bank and back across the river at Westminster.
The route links many of London's 2012 Games venues including the O2 Arena, which will host the gymnastics, trampoline and wheelchair basketball events, and Hyde Park, where the 10km open water swim will take place in the Serpentine.
Greenwich Park is a short stroll away where the equestrian and modern pentathlon will be held.
The Queen suggested creating the original Jubilee Walkway to celebrate her Silver Jubilee in 1977 as a 'legacy of her reign, and to provide an opportunity for visitors to experience the variety of London life'.
The Jubilee Walkway Trust was then set up to look after and promote the path. The Trust has developed the Jubilee Greenway in anticipation of this year's celebrations and the 2012 Games.
It is 60km long - one kilometre for each year of the Queen's reign - and marked with distinctive pavement slabs made from recycled glass.
Walk this way
The Walk London Network consists of seven walking routes that, when combined, are 645km long.
More than 90 per cent of Londoners live within 10 minutes of the network, which attracted more than 7.5 million walkers in 2010/11.
It offers access to high-quality and accessible walking routes.
Transport for London has improved the routes with signage, improved surfaces, seating and lighting.
