Journey Planner on Foot

bagrec's just pointed me in the direction of Walk It (basically TFL's journey planner, but for walking places).

It's nice to know that it would take me just over 2 hours at a fast pace (which is what I tend to walk) to get from home to work, which seeing as it's the other side of Zone 4 to Zone 1 isn't bad really...

I think in general, I may be getting up a bit late to consider it for my commute though and may have to stick with the 10 minute train journey for now. However, I have found on a number of occasions that walking around London has been a lot quicker than waiting for a bus or getting on the Tube, so I'll definitely be looking at this again.

That would have been really useful to have when we lived in Walthamstow. Not that I think I would have ever bothered walking to work as a general rule, but on tube strike days it would have been great to have the exact route planned out.

I'm certainly going to use this when I need to get around in London though, I prefer to walk if possible.

of course tfl's journey planner allows you to plan walking routes as well (up to 120 minutes, it seems--with an option for your walking speed: fast/average/slow), but I find their interface horribly slow in my browser. on the odd occasion I've tried it, it doesn't seem to pick out particularly interesting/pleasant walking routes, either
