This year, we're bringing back yet another popular day hike among Londoners for the second (and closer one) of our Try It! Fortnight series. You DON'T have to be a member to come for this, we really just want you to have fun!

The information below are very important, please read them carefully and meet at the right time, and at the right station! Do message us if you have any questions :)

This walk is a collaboration with UCL Photography and offers a great introduction to not only the wilder parts of London but also beginner-level photography with your phones/cameras, as Macro photgraphy tips will be given during the trip. We’ll depart Wimbledon, home of British Tennis, and cross Wimbledon Common. From there we’ll enter Richmond Park, famous for its deers and wide open hillside. We’ll hike up to King Henry’s Mound, one of the best protected views of London and finish in the village-like suburb, Richmond. We’ll look for a pub near the station for some drinks afterwards, if you'd like to join us for a well earned pint!
