Any suggestions on a good family walk near SE1 or easy to get to via a short tube ride?

Thinking something along the lines of Dulwich woods, or Nunhead Cemetry. ..but not those as think we've walked them to death!

In need of inspiration this morning!

Limehouse basin along the canal is great and you can stop at Victoria Park for tea (not sure how far you are planning to walk, but maybe catch a tube to Victoria Park and walk back down the canal).

Start at London Bridge, walk north over the bridge and drop down to the riverside walk. Head east towards the Tower and loop around the north side which will lead you into St Katherine's Dock. Go around it clockwise and come back up onto Tower Bridge. (You could then loop around Shad Thames and come back along the river from the Design Museum). Walk through Potters Fields the kids will love to play in The Scoop and the water fountains above them. Head back to London Bridge station.

This sounds great, will suggest this for next weekend. The kids out numbered us yesterday with daughter's friends coming along too and they were dead* keen to go to Nunhead Cemetry on all saints day in spooky fog

Have done the St Katherine dock circuit many a time (was one of my fav places to go with my dad as a kid, tho was very different in the 80s...) is our go to quick local stroll quite often

Like the suggestion of Stave Hill Eco park always forget that's there



*see what I did there...

Don't forget Surrey Docks Farm, they have a good cafe or the Ship and Whale is nearby for food and drinks.

Another walk we've done is from the Greenland Dock area along the river to Greenwich, then get a boat or bus back. Or you can do it on the other side of the river, get a tube to Canary Wharf and follow the river along Narrow St / Wapping and over Tower Bridge, a good pub crawl too if you've not got little ones!

Southwark Park (beautiful, especially now), over Jamaica Rd. by Rotherhithe Tunnel, through Kings Stairs Gardens along river eastwards to St. Mary's Church, look in on Sands Films ( wonderful old warehouse space containing Rotherhithe Photo Archives amongst other things) to Brunel Museum, Mayflower pub, over to Surrey Quays via canals & back by tube. Another weekend perhaps?

Perhaps not a lot of walking but you could try this next time. I've done it. Grandkids loved it. Take a boat (clipper)from Bankside to Greenwich by the Cutty Sark. Then walk under the river through the foot tunnel to Island Gardens. There's a lovely little cafe there run by a couple of Jamaican ladies with absolutely authentic food. Five year old grand daughter cleaned her plate, which is exceptional! Then catch the DLR from Island Gardens for the spectacular ride back through the Canary Wharf canyons to Tower Gateway. An RV1bus goes back to Bankside area but if the kids, and you, still have energy to burn you could walk over Tower Bridge and back along the South towpath.

Lots of great suggestions, many of which we are already familiar with.

I guess what we're looking for is something within easy reach of se1 but not necessarily in se1

We used to live next to southwark park, so know that area and surrey quays / Greenland dock well. Now over in Borough and are familiar with bankside , more london river walks etc.

Husband is keen for more 'woods ' walks. Or those that feel like you're in the woods, haha!
