The London Bridges Walk is back for another year. On Sunday 7 July, join friends of Royal Brompton and Harefield hospitals walking through central London to advance care for heart and lung patients.

Your day will begin at the Morpeth Arms in Westminster before you head off on a breathtaking route through central London, passing by famous landmarks and crossing six iconic bridges over the Thames.

En route, you'll be treated to sights such as Lambeth Palace, the Royal Festival Hall, the Houses of Parliament, the London Eye, St Paul’s Cathedral, the Tate Modern, and St Thomas’ Hospital, sister hospital to Royal Brompton and Harefield.

Previous participant Eugene Miskelly said:

This will be my third time walking the London Bridges and what a tremendous way to spend a Sunday morning. A gathering of strangers, unsure if they will know anyone at the start, soon become your friends along the way. It’s a fun day, decent exercise, good company and you have the whole afternoon to glow in the satisfaction that you’ve done something worthwhile with your day.

You can choose a distance that suits you: five or ten kilometres. Wheelchair-accessible options are also available.

All the funds raised will go towards the vital work of champion ideas, research and innovation to prevent, diagnose and treat heart and lung conditions – creating better chances and new possibilities for every patient.

Richard Bowyer, Chief Executive of Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospitals Charity, expressed his enthusiasm for this fundraising event:

Participating in the London Bridges Walk is not just about taking steps; it's about taking strides towards a brighter future for heart and lung patients. Together, we can make a tangible difference in the lives of those suffering from the burden of heart and lung disease. Let's walk with purpose, with passion, and with the profound belief that every step makes a difference.
