Walk this way to a happier, healthier you!

Walk from King's Cross to BMA House clean air route

Are you attending an event BMA House or popping in to see our sustainable venue? London can sometimes seem like one big maze when you’re not familiar with an area, so the 'green' Venues Team have done the hard work for you and mapped out the best walking route to take. By following our ‘Wellbeing Walk’ you’ll not only see the far prettier sights of Bloomsbury, but most importantly the air you’ll breath will be cleaner! Here’s why…

BMA House has teamed up with the Global Good Awards who host their Sustainability Awards with us, and Cross River Partnership ​to produce an inspiring Clean Air Walking Route from King's Cross to BMA House, which takes you on a much nicer, less polluted walking route off the busy Euston Road. 

After close examination whereby the air pollution was monitored by students from Kings College London along the Euston Road and then again through the back streets, it found that by taking the quieter streets people are exposed to 57% less air pollution!

The lesser known route takes you through Bidborough Street, past Flaxmann Terrace and along the gorgeous cobbled Woburn Walk, which in our eyes gives you a picturesque start to your day. Another bonus of choosing to walk along the quieter roads is this 1,000 steps route, as highlighted in the map, also counts towards your 10,000 recommended steps a day! 

With Wellbeing being a current hot topic, BMA House will be actively promoting this route to delegates and event bookers and we're hoping you will join us.

Brendon Harper, Air Quality Project Manager from Cross River Partnership has commented on our exciting new relationship:

"Cross River Partnership are pleased to be working with BMA House to develop a clean air walking route to their fantastic venue on Tavistock Square. The new clean air route will encourage staff, members and delegates to take a cleaner, healthier walking route when visiting the BMA, reducing their exposure to air pollution."
