Event description

Description

This year we start our much loved Christmas Walk at Canary Wharf Tube Station and from here we'll join the Thames Path enjoying the ever changing skyline of the River Thames. There is always plenty to see as we walk towards Tower Bridge. At times we are walking along the riverside and at others slightly back due to property development.

Once we reach the Iconic Tower Bridge we'll cross the bridge to the South Bank and one of the Christmas Markets on route. Then over London Bridge, from where we get more great views and up to Leadenhall Market which brings the feeling of Christmas of yester year due to the more traditional surroundings. This market dates back to the 14th century, and is one of the oldest markets in London. It's located in the historic centre of the financial district of the City of London.

From here we'll head towards to St Paul's and then across the Wobbly Bridge which will take us back to the South Bank and our destination of the Archduke Wine Bar where we'll enjoy a cocktail or two and perhaps a late lunch depending on how the day has gone.

We will start at 10.00 and will stop for coffee and lunch.

To make sure we are in flow with the weather, whatever it may be, please wear layers as this allows you to take off or add as temperature varies. Bring a bottle of water and a snack or two e.g some nuts or a protein bar incase you get the nibbles and also money for lunch and coffees and of course cocktails.

Final details will be emailed out to those signing up at the latest the day before the walk.

With "Netwalking Women" we have weekend walks each month. We alternate the weekend days so that one month the walk is on a Saturday and then the next month on a Sunday.

It’s a day of investing in you, your health and wellbeing; of putting yourself first and as the opportunity arises, doing business in a different way! But you don’t have to be a business woman – you can be a woman who enjoys the company of other women, a woman who has chosen to take a day out from her job to look after herself, a mum who is child free for a time and choosing to spend her day in this way.

Walking is a wonderful way to get some exercise, to see a new part of a city of a corner of the countryside. It’s a wonderful way to socialise and to network too. When you’re walking you don’t need to keep eye contact and this can be very useful when challending and difficult conversations are taking place. In all my years of walking with women I have observed the most frivilous and lighthearted conversations one moment and the next a very deep and serious discussion the next. Walking allows all of that.

At the end of the day you’ll –

  • come away refreshed and with a clearer head having had a day in the fresh air

  • you’ll have met great women

  • you’ll have chatted, shared and learnt

  • you’ll have enjoyed coffee and lunch stops and perhaps an after walk drink

  • you’ll feel energised and exercised

  • you’ll be looking for the date of the next event..

This is time and space for you and it’s going to happen once a month.
