We’ve teamed up with MR PORTER to celebrate World Mental Health Day and the second anniversary of their content and fundraising initiative, MR PORTER Health in Mind, which helps men to live healthier and happier lives. Their latest campaign, #MRPORTERGoOut, is all about the healing power of time spent with good friends in the great outdoors – and the positive impact that has on both your mental and physical health. So, we’ve come together to create some bespoke, London-based walks, complete with route info and café recs, to help get people walking and talking.
Start your journey from Liverpool Street Station and catch the overground service to Chingford, right on the edge of the forest. The route takes you uphill and through the best of Epping Forest. After working up an appetite, we recommend stopping for a drink or bite to eat at the Victoria Tavern and Gardeners Arms in Loughton. It’s then just a short walk down the road to Loughton Underground Station. When you’ve had quite enough of London’s bright lights and car horns, give yourself a little room to breathe.
