InspiralLondon is an ambitious artist-led metropolitan trail, a collective on the ground work, mapping a new walk trail winding in and out of London. This anti-clockwise spiral walk begins at Kings Cross, unwinding from its centre point six times, to finally end at Gravesend, only to begin again. This unique Metropolitan trail crosses the River Thames at ten locations, using bridges, foot tunnels, a cable car and ferries.

At over 300-miles of path way, the trail is divided into 36 segments all easily accessible by public transport, allowing the public – walkers, urban explorers, excursionists – to experience the city and its environs as one vast art space in which to re-imagine the built and natural environment. The Inspiral Trail is coordinated by InspiralLondon CIC, and is  an original idea conceived by counterproductions in 2013.

“The festival was brilliant – collaborative, informative and thought-provoking and I would definitely recommend inspiral to others.” (Festival Participant, NightWalking North Kent April 2018)
