The Ramblers Association now have a greatly improved website which is an exceptional rescource for all walkers, hykers and young families wanting to go for walks with young children. This site lists everything from historical walks to guided walks and really audious walks.

Find A Walk Near Me by Walking Britain is a truly excellent and free resource. Just enter where you are or where you would like to walk - and print out directions. The walks are graded and you can buy a specific map of the area at the same time. These are proper OS maps and weather proofed if required.

I always think of walking as one of the few activities you can do for free - and now you can with this guide!

Firefly

325 Underhill Rd, East Dulwich, London SE22 9EA, UK – 020 8425 0821

We have just had a wood burner installed and couldn’t be happier. We spent a long time researching different companies and were so impressed when we met Angus. He couldn’t have been more helpful, taking us through all the different options and explaining everything really clearly. It felt like nothing was too much trouble and his patience and advice made the whole process so much easier and more enjoyable. Installation was quick and clean and the final result was even better than we had thought it would be. I would recommend Firefly to anyone looking for a very professional and helpful service at a reasonable price. Thank you so much, Angus!

Angus and his team installed our beautiful wood burner and we could not be happier. Angus, was most accommodating as we wanted tiles for the hearth. His team worked out how best to lay the tiles so not to compromise the pattern and also incorporated some of our old tiles from the original surround. It looks beautiful. Thank you Angus and your team for being informative, clean, tidy, professional and all done in a calm, polite, fun manner. It seems no job, for this team, is too big or small. What's also excellent is the aftercare, Angus was more than happy to answer all my questions and instruct me accordingly. I would higy recommend Firefly with their beautiful shop and outstanding service. Thank you, our home has never been warmer!

Greensign UK

117 Anerley Rd, London SE20 8AJ, UK – 020 8778 5628

Definitely one of the best sign companies in the South East London. We had a lovely experience with Greensigns UK, friendly reliable service would always recommend them to anyone who is looking for a great job at a reasonable price. We are more than pleased with the T shirts/sweatshirts we had printed and fantastic vans graphics. Thank you Greensigns UK.

We have been using Green Sign for various projects in last 10 years. Every time small or larger project his job was done perfectly at at good price. I would strongly recommend Przemek and his team!!!

WalkingWorld.jpg
Another good one. Walkingworld has huge library of guides with a good selection of walks, of varying lengths and grades, pretty well anywhere in the UK. The walks come in an excellent format making them very easy to follow, with photographs to illustrate every important decision point and a proper Ordnance Survey map.

A modist annual subscription gives you unlimited access to all the walks. However you can Pay As Go by downloading indiviual walks.

Crucially you can also find walks France, Spain, Norway, Portugal and Australia!

Camping and Caravaning

Crystal Palace Caravan and Motorhome Club Site

Old Cople Lane, Crystal Palace Parade, London SE19 1UF, UK – 020 8778 7155

Although the site is adjacent to the busy road it is protected from the noise by its lush boundary of trees. As well as caravans and motor homes the site (unusually ) also welcomes tents. The toilet facilities are clean and warm in the winter. London Transport buses to Trafalgar Square leave approximately every 10 minutes and take roughly an hour. Connections can be made to all the capitals landmarks. Crystal Palace is a 15 minute walk and a garage nearby sells milk and other basics. Wholeheartedly recommend this site for a London based.

Nice and clean site, good facilities, very welcoming and helpful staff. Reasonable access, to site. There is a large mast nearby that may interference with phones, but unless you look up you will hardly notice it due to trees etc around the site. Buses to central London are good and easy to get to, train station is a good walk away from site and uphill on return. Train is not much quicker than bus anyway by the time you have got to station and possibly changed trains.

Dog People is such a great website if you have dogs who go on holiday with you. Just enter your location and everything from dog friendly Bed and Breakfasts and Hotels to dog friendly walks and beaches come up. The Dog People site covers Bed & Breakfast, Holiday Parks, Hotels, Self Catering, Pubs & Food, Days Out. Enjoy!
