Railway Children's Rail Trail

It's back for 2024! Join us in September for another walk along an iconic London underground route: The Circle Line.

Generously supported by Transport for London, the Railway Children Rail Trail will follow the iconic spiral-shaped Circle Line overland from Hammersmith to Edgware Road, covering a distance of 27km and 36 stations. 

The Rail Trail is a great way to get fit, enjoy the lesser-seen sites of London and build up team spirit - whether you're taking part with friends, family or colleagues. 

The event has a fundraising target of £100 per participant and the process of gathering sponsorship couldn’t be easier. But, as well as raising money, this experience is about challenging yourself and having fun, and there are plenty of opportunities at stations along the route to rest your feet, fuel your body, let your hair down and enjoy some photo opportunities together. 

The Rail Trail is a chance to see London in a whole different light – and change lives in the process.

How it all began...

The Rail Trail series of events launched as part of Rail Aid 2022, with 200 participants walking the 15-mile walk route of the new London Underground Elizabeth line. Celebrating the Platinum Jubilee and the opening of the commemorative route, the Elizabeth line Rail Trail on October 7th raised an incredible £42,000 of vital funds for Railway Children. The event was generously sponsored by SMBC Leasing and supported by TfL and MTR, and saw those taking part following the new line through the streets between Woolwich and Paddington.
