The Line

1 April ’21

The Line

The Line is London’s first dedicated public art walk, though it also involves public transport as it is broken up by the River Thames which lacks good north-south connections this far east. It is so-named because it very roughly follows the Greenwich Meridian, but it’s more accurate to claim it follows the waterways near the meridian.

For all its flaws it has some nice pieces of work, and the map of the walk also highlights interesting items of history and nature of the area.

If you’re in one of the areas it covers then it’s a nice addition to some walking routes that you’re likely to do at some point anyway - it has overlaps with the Thames Path, Jubilee Greenway, and Lea Valley Walk.
