Walk the World
In Summer 2012 competitors from 206 different countries came to the UK for the Olympic and Paralympic Games. To celebrate we created over 20 special walks in different parts of Britain. Each one tells a story of a particular town or city and its international connections.
From London’s Strand to a small village in Suffolk, from Belfast to Bideford, these walks uncover how the UK has been shaped and influenced by the rest of the world over the centuries.
The walks are designed to be fun, informative and inspiring. They are completely free, self-guided and suitable for all ages and abilities. Prepare to discover something new and to be surprised by what is right on your own doorstep.
