Review – City walks London: 50 Adventures on Foot

One product that we love for our day trips around London are these flashcard-style walking tours for areas all throughout London. Anytime we’re stumped for something to do we go to the cards, randomly pick one out, and off we go!

What I love about these cards is they are so easy! They point out an Underground station to start at and give super simple directions on where to walk and points along the way. And the set is affordable on sites like Amazon, much cheaper than paying for individual guided tours all the time.

Not only do you learn a little bit about the area with the descriptions of various landmarks, but they also highlight  good places to eat along your journey, maybe a bookstore you never knew existed, or cool pubs to pop into for a pint.

We’ve made it about halfway through our cards. We even let the teenage monkeys take turns picking out a card and it’s fun to go discover a new area we can go hang out in or show friends when they come to visit. I’d highly recommend this nifty little find to anyone who’d love a good walk about London!

    • Omg so do we!! Haha the OCD in me freaks out, but somehow we always end up making up our own card along the way 🙂 We’re here for at least another 2 years, but maybe for good! How about you? I know from your blog you guys have moved around quite a bit. Is London short term for you?

      • Who knows…:) It was originally just for 2 years, but it keeps getting longer with each conversation. I’m glad we aren’t the only ones who manage to do the walks backwards…and make up our own as we go along. Any favorites yet? I chop the edge off the ones we’ve done..still a long way to go.
