Roger Ebert's Perfect London Walk on Sunday, November 9th; Steve James in London Today, November 7th

“For twenty years, my favorite pastime has been to walk around London. However, there is one walk that is more than just familiar. It is a ritual. It is one I have taken every time I have visited London. I have walked it in snow and sleet, in rain and cold, in burning hot drought, and, most often, on perfect spring or autumn days. I have walked it fifty times with a hundred friends, and I am not half through with it yet.”

Roger Ebert wrote these words in his 1986 book, "The Perfect London Walk" with co-author Daniel Curley and photographer Jack Lane. We are happy to announce that on Sunday, November 9th, Londoners led by Dogwoof and Cinema Nation will retrace Ebert's steps starting in Hampstead Heath at Daunt Books and ending at The Spaniards Inn. Participants in Roger Ebert's Perfect London Walk are asked to meet near the Dogwoof flag at noon outside Daunt Books. The walk will kick off at 12:15pm and end around 2pm.
