Join us for the first ever 'Around the Grounds' sponsorsored walk - a unique way of visiting central London's Premier League stadiums.
The walk will be led by Glacier Trust volunteer, Glyn Phillips, with support from our co-director Morgan who will cycle alongside walkers for the entire route. Regular stops will be made for refreshments and at each stadium for souvenier photo's. We will stop and rest at the half way point to watch the last game of the Premier League season over a pub lunch.
Whilst we don't expect you to have Premier League levels of fitness, this is a one day, 27.4 mile, walk so will be physically challenging. We recommend it only to experienced walkers. We have planned the route to avoid major roads as far as possible, but we ask all participants to take maximum care by adhering to all road safety advice.
Participants will start at Wembley stadium under the statue of the legendary Bobby Moore. We will then walk south-east to Stamford Bridge, before turning north-east across Hyde Park, Regent's Park and across to Camden town. We will then head east along the Regent's Canal towpath to The Thornhill Arms.
After lunch and footy watching, we head north-east again to the Emirates stadium and then east through London Fields and Victoria Park to the London Stadium and Queen Elizabeth II park. From there, our last leg takes us north along the River Lea, to Tottenham Marshes, the orginal home of the Spurs and finally to White Hart Lane and the site of the new Tottenham stadium.
'Around the Grounds' is an official and exclusive event designed and managed by The Glacier Trust.
