/ Steepest continuous walks/runs in London (for fitness)?
I find it useful to walk brisk up and down Parliament Hill in London as well as one of the hills in Greenwich Park (just west to the hill where the Royal Observatory is).
Are there any other good places for fitness walks/runs?
The stairs in the Shard?
Or slightly cheaper, you could run up the stairs up "monument" in the city of london maybe?
I live in Barnes, west London so the only hills near me are Richmond Hill and the one in Richmond Park. When marathon training I do my hill sprints there. If you have the time and a car get yourself down to Dorking and scramble up and down Box Hill, you will be breathing out your arse soon enough.
Mill hill area, north east London
You can run up a "down" escalator for the whole day if you fancy.
