London Walking action plans

The first of these plans, the Walking action plan, is aimed at making London the world’s most walkable city, with a target to increase the number of walking trips by more than one million a day by 2024.

The Leisure walking plan sets out the ambition to enhance, improve and expand opportunities to walk for pleasure in London. It includes actions for connecting parks and green spaces with local communities, and for making sure these green routes are accessible for everyone.
