Along the route you'll experience interesting buildings, live entertainment, food and a taster of the life-changing support we provide in our centres. For 2019 we are so excited to confirm our walkers will get exclusive access to Kensington Palace, The National Portrait Gallery, V&A and the Science Museum on the 10 mile walk. Our walkers will also get to visit 2 of our London Maggie's centres and have a taste of the programme of support which we offer.
There will be live entertainment along the route and a chance to get your photo taken at the beginning of the walk with All Occassion Photo Booths who will be providing us with a photo booth to capture some pre walk photos.
So join us with your friends and explore spectacular buildings and amazing culture first hand.

I was diagnosed with aggressive breast cancer two years ago. I was 38 years old at the time and my whole life turned upside down. Going through chemotherapy, surgery and radiotherapy was scary, difficult and sometimes very lonely. For the first four months I visited the hospital at least once a week, and sitting in the overcrowded waiting rooms so often really did not help. Being able to go to Maggie's and just sit quietly with a cup of tea was such a relief. It sounds like a small thing, but it meant so much to me.
I took part in Culture Crawl last year because I enjoy both culture and walking, and the event looked like a lot of fun. And it sure was! There are so many extraordinary things so see and experience and the whole event is really well planned and executed.
