Sunday walk - Beautiful Bedfordshire

Arlesey to Letchworth Garden City
Length: 24.5km (15.2 miles). Toughness: 5 out of 10

10:09 Peterborough train from Kings Cross (Finsbury Park 10:16), arriving Arlesey at 10:48.

Return trains from Letchworth Garden City to Kings Cross are at xx:29 (journey 52 mins) and xx:53 (journey time 41 mins). Buy an off-peak day return to Letchworth Garden City. You may need an additional single from Hitchin to Arlesey if the guard is strict.

A longish, but mainly flat and not too challenging, walk through meadows, fields, pretty villages and green lanes on the Bedfordshire/Hertfordshire borders. A couple of optional short cuts reduce the length by a mile or two, but there are no really short options. The walk notes give details of a number of features of interest

The recommended lunch pub is The Crown (01462 711667) in Shillington, 7 miles into the walk. Alternative pubs are also possible (see walk directions).

You will need to download the walk directions.
