Walking & Cycling Around London

Better weather will soon be here so it’s a great time to consider your fitness as well as the environment by choosing to walk or cycle all or part of your commute.

Many of us get a train into London, so instead of jumping on the rube of bus, see if you can cycle or walk the rest of the way instead.

Here are some useful links so you can your journeys.

Then you can plan to get to your place of work – including finding Santander bikes and walking routes:

Get on your bike!

Planning your travel to work

GKR is a Carbon Neutral Business and as part of our Net Zero Carbon plans we are encouraging all our staff to use public transport rather than their cars to travel to and from work.

If you must drive, remember the Congestion Charge and Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) charges.


Consider parking outside these areas and taking public transport in and around London.
You can find parking outside the zone online such as on the following websites:
