Best foot forward

walkit1I’ve been trying out a great new website Walkit, which helps you plan your walking routes around London (thanks to David Hepworth for the tip).

The TfL journeyplanner is great for public transport routes, but its walking routes are, well, a bit pedestrian. With Walkit you have the option of a quiet route not just the most direct but rather boring one. Walkit also has the bonus of giving you a range of estimated times (depending on your speed), so you need never be late again. And it tells you how much CO2 you’ll save and how many calories you’ll burn up. I’ve checked some of my regular destinations on Walkit and it’s either come up with my favourite route or suggested a better one, so I’ll definitely be using the site in future.

Maybe it could even help the Home Secretary get out of her limo and walk round London after all.
