Carbon Neutral Activities & Wellbeing in our Cities – London Jogging
When you stay at one of our London properties, you’re always in close proximity to a safe, scenic jogging track. Whether you’re working up a sweat on a four-mile run, or taking in the city sights on a light, local trot, you’re bound to find something to fit your fitness levels.
Curzon Street properties:
As one of the most exclusive neighbourhoods in London, Mayfair is always worth the run-by. Take in the elegant architecture, high-end shops and luxurious restaurants, then break out from the concrete into Green Park, less than 2-minutes from our Curzon Street properties.
Green Park Loop (2.5 miles):
It’s hard to beat the convenience and scenery of Green Park with over 40 acres of pristine garden territory maintained year-round. A jog around this route also provides a glance at a couple of famous landmarks, such as Buckingham Palace and the Canada Gate.
Four Royal Parks Circuit (6.57 miles):
If you’re looking for a wholesome way to explore the city centre, you could do a lot worse than the Four Royal Parks Circuit, which will steer you through Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens pathways bringing into view a number of noteworthy landmarks, such as the Serpentine Lake, Speakers’ Corner, and the Diana Memorial Fountain. The route is flat and nearly traffic free, just be certain to visit before dusk, when Kensington Gardens closes.
No1 The Mansions, Kensington:
Amongst London’s most famous and charming boroughs, Kensington and Chelsea is unsurprisingly a delightful destination for a jog. In just an hour’s circuit, you’re liable to spot celebrities, sight 19th century architecture and even catch a glimpse of the Thames at sunset (if you know where to run).
Holland Park Loop (2.5 miles):
Located just a short jog from our Mansions property, the Holland Park route rambles north through luxury shops, upscale restaurants and historical buildings, all the way to the famous Kyoto Garden, a gift to the city of London from the city of Kyoto, in Japan.
Regent’s Canal Towpath (7.5 miles):
If you’re feeling a little more motivated, you might instead head south towards the river. By following the canal towpath, you can drink in (not literally) the waterside atmosphere and then head along towards London Zoo and past Regent’s Park.
Is it possible to practise sustainability in a city of over 9 million? According to the mayor’s ‘1.5-degree compatible plan’, the answer is ‘yes’ – with a heavy focus on eco building, public parks and zero-emissions mass public transportation.
London is going green, and guests of ByMansley, in both the Mayfair or Kensington properties, will find no shortage of natural spaces, sustainable travel options or eco-minded restaurants to help them reduce carbon footprint and stay healthy in the process.
