Travel insurance: London Walks awarded for tourism experience

Tuesday, 28 April 2009

Walking enthusiasts may want to get their travel insurance in order and have a go at some expeditions in London, which have recently won a tourism award.

Some 400 different treks through the capital are offered by London Walks, which received the Gold honour at the Enjoy England Awards for Excellence 2009.

The judges said the activities offered by the organisation provide a "fun, green, entertaining and value for money experience all year round".

Walks include the Foodies' West End and Gandhi's London.

Most of the journeys take about two hours and cover approximately one mile. They go at a "gentle" speed and with some of them there is a chance to have a sit down.

Meanwhile, other London attractions picked up gongs at the awards ceremony, which was organised by Visit Britain.

The National Theatre won for best access to tourism, while the Science Museum was given the silver prize for best large visitor attraction.
