The London Outer Orbital Path is 150 miles (240km) long, and is sometimes referred to as the London LOOP.
The London Outer Orbital Path starts at Erith on the south bank of the River Thames, and finishes at Purfleet on the opposite north bank. The route goes through various parks, woods and fields around the edge of Outer London including some of the highest points in Greater London. The London Loop also follows waterside paths alongside the Grand Union Canal and London rivers such as the Colne, Crane, Cray, Darent and Ingrebourne.
The official guidebook for the London Outer Orbital is published by Aurum Press and is called The London LOOP by David Sharpe and Colin Saunders. Buy guidebooks for the London Outer Orbital from our shop.
