Interactive walk encourages healthy lifestyle in the capital

Brought to life by a number of charities and organisations, including the British Heart Foundation, King’s Health Partners, London & Partners and Excel London, the London Heart Trail is an interactive walk  taking place along London’s South Bank until 3rd September.

The one to two hour walk coincides with the five-day European Society of Cardiology (ESC) congress (starting Saturday 29th August) and hopes to inspire people to see London in a healthier way. It is free to take part in, and donations to the British Heart Foundation are encouraged.

Comprising 12 hotspots, seven of which are hidden, the walk stretches from the London Eye to Tower Bridge. Walkers will be given the chance to win prizes by taking part in challenges, figuring out clues and answering questions about heart health using the London Heart Trail App.

The trail has been produced by PS Live and Wildgoose Events developed the interactive app, which  participants are able to download from iTunes or Play Store.

Mayor of London Boris Johnson, said: “Walking is one of the best – and healthiest – ways to explore the capital and the London Heart Trail App will signpost some of our greatest attractions, whilst learning about our own health and wellbeing at the same time.”
