The trek will include Albert Bridge, Chelsea Bridge, Vauxhall Bridge, Lambeth Bridge, Westminster Bridge, Millennium Bridge, London Bridge and Tower Bridge.

Head of events at the hospice, Richard Harbon, said: “We’re delighted that Bridges of London is returning for 2022.

"Over the past 12 years it has grown into an extremely popular community event among friends, families and groups, many of whom take part each year in memory of loved ones.

“Throughout the day there’s a chance to take in some of the most famous sites of our wonderful capital city, while many also use the opportunity to stop off in one of the array of cafés, bars and restaurants along the way. What a perfect way to put aside the disruption of the past few years and enjoy a great day out, whilst raising much-needed funds for the hospice.”

Participants have the option of return coach travel from Letchworth with the hospice, or meeting the team at Battersea Park on the day.
