Footsteps for Childhood is The Children's Society's exciting new summer walking event, replacing their popular London Bridge walks. Starting outside Tate Modern on Saturday 15 September, the event is a great way to explore historic London on foot. There are three walks to choose from offering people of all ages and fitness levels a great opportunity to explore the rich history of London.
The Young Detective's Walk is ideal for families with small children, being just 1.5 miles long. Let your little ones become a Private Eye for the day as they uncover hidden clues to solve a mystery. This walk promises to keep all children entertained as they explore the treasures of London.
The Explorer's Walk: this five-mile walk will introduce you to the major sites of central London. Enjoy panoramic views of the city as you cross a number of London's bridges, taking in such world-famous sites as the Houses of Parliament, St. Paul's Cathedral and The Millennium Eye.
The Adventurer's Walk: for those who want to delve deeper into London's history, the 10-mile Adventurer's Walk offers the opportunity to explore many of the capital's major sights and less known hidden treasures.
Footsteps for Childhood is not just a walk, but a fun summer event. There will be live music and dance at the Footsteps Arena, an Art and Fun Tent hosted by The Early Learning Centre, bungee trampolining sponsored by Ecclesiastical Insurance, and much, much more. There willl even be a special appearance from Scooby Doo!
Footsteps for Childhood aims to raise 500,000 to help the thousands of children who face danger, discrimination and disadvantage on a daily basis.
