Nordic Walking


In partnership with Parkinson's UK, we meet on the last Thursday of the month for a Nordic Walk around Charlton Park. 

When: Last Thursday of the month, 2:00pm until 3:00pm.

Where: Meet at Charlton House, London, SE7 8RE.

What is Nordic Walking and why is it good for me?

Nordic Walking is an enhanced walking technique using poles to support and engage muscles for a full body workout and a load of health benefits, including:

  • Focussing on good posture, good breathing and using your arms.
  • Using more muscles like chest, arms, shoulders and core, as well as legs.
  • Poles propel you forward, making you walk faster which boosts energy and raises heart rate.
  • Raising your heart rate helps circulation which lowers blood pressure, and improves breathing which benefits lungs.
  • Supportive poles protect your joints.

This walk lasts around an hour and explores Charlton Park.

Toilets and refreshments are available in Charlton Park. There are various transport options including buses that stop at Charlton Park Road. The ground may be uneven or muddy, so please wear suitable footwear and clothing for the outdoors.

If you are interested in our other healthy walks, we have many free walks to choose from around the Royal Borough of Greenwich.

If you have any questions, email Fiona or call the Live Well Community Hub on 0800 470 4831.
