Get your run/bike/walk on and answer 30 questions about places around Lambeth. Become the knower of useless facts you were born to be.

What a lovely weekend activity!

Google Maps will help you on your way but the route is pretty much: Brixton > Streatham > Streatham Common > Crystal Palace > Gypsy Hill > West Norwood > Tulse Hill > Herne Hill > Loughborough Junction > Brixton > Larkhall Park > Kennington Park > Oval > Lambeth Palace > Southbank

It's about 25km in total but absolutely do it in chunks.
