Something you should do… Walk Like A Pirate Day

Community spirit can sometimes be slightly lacking in London. In a big city, it can be hard to get to know your neighbours – but it’s good to give back and being able to do it in a way that combines exploring London and raising money is a beautiful combination.

The Camden Pirate Castle is a wonderful community centre, based funnily enough by the lock in Camden, providing a place for young children to learn and play with boats and canoes, as well as offering an indoor space for various activities including yoga and tai-chi and all around doing valuable work for the local community. So join them for their fourth Walk Like A Pirate Day, a 12 mile walk on 22 June alongside London’s waterways to raise money for the centre.

Walk Like A Pirate

Fancy dress is optional and with no charge to participate and no minimum sponsorship required, so it is a relaxed way to raise money for a great cause and take in the London river scenery.
The walk kicks off at 12pm outside Tottenham Hale tube station with a group photo and will end back at the Pirate House for celebratory drinks for all who survived.
