Nightline Route Map…follow the dots!
The walk will start at our Wide Horizons Environment Centre in Eltham, South-East London and will end at the Wide Horizons Margaret McMillan House in Wrotham, Kent. The entire route will be waymarked with illuminated arrows, so that you don’t lose your way! A shuttle bus will take everyone back to the starting point.
If you are new to the Nightline, it’s important for you to know that you can chose between two options: a 25Km or a 50Km walk. In the first 25km we will walk through some of the most famous walking trails in the area, including the Green Chain Link, the London Loop, and the Darent Valley Path. Midway, the Wide Horizons Horton Kirby Centre will be welcoming us for a rest and refuel.
If you decide to opt for the 50Km walk, you will then enjoy the landscapes of the Darent Valley Path and the North Downs Way. Once we’ll reach our final destination, a hot breakfast will be waiting for us!
