About the Event
PLEASE NOTE, this walk is NOT CIRCULAR. It will start at Finsbury Park station and end at Wood Green tube station (also passing by Alexandra Palace Station)
Join us for a wander along London’s longest linear nature reserve.
We’ll follow the old Finsbury Park to Alexandra Palace railway line—now an unexpected green corridor passing through the heart of North London.
The Parkland Walk is shrouded by beautiful trees and has become a home to foxes, bats and even muntjac deer. The railway’s old tunnels and brickworks also serve as a canvas for local street art.
We’ll stop to explore Highgate Wood in its full autumnal glory and to take in panoramic views of the city from Ally Pally.
As ever, this is a chance to meet new people and to discuss how you stay Wildish in this wonderful, frenetic city of ours.
There’ll be opportunities for bathroom breaks and to purchase refreshments on route.
Any questions, just give us a shout!
