The downside to walking in London? - Most people say it takes too much time but in fact, in certain parts of London, walking can be the fastest way of getting from A to B. Also, it doesn't matter if it takes a bit longer to soak-in fantastic views such as the banks of the River Thames.

Obviously, it would not be in your interest to walk from London Heathrow Airport (LHR)
to the city centre. It would take hours while travelling by London Underground train would take just 20 minutes. However, between certain London Underground stations such as Covent Garden
and Leicester Square
, it is actually quicker to walk than take the train. London tube
stations look like they're similar distances apart on the Tube Map but in reality they're not. Many stations in Central London are just a few hundred metres apart whereas in the outer-zones, stations are miles apart.
The Mayor of London is dedicated to making London greener and a big part of achieving this is to make London one of the most pedestrian and cyclist friendly cities in the world. Many special pedestrian walkways and cycle paths have been created.
