Walk Score

In a similar theme to the walkit.com website, which I’ve written about before, there is now Walk Score, which takes an electronic look at your local amenities and then scores your neighbourhood.

Of course they can’t tell you whether The Talbot is a nice place for a relaxing drink or if it’s worth wandering to Everest for a meal, and it’s clear that not everything has been mapped – no sight or sound of Meze Mangal, and my local park isn’t Mudchute.

That said it’s a great idea, and the 60 out 100 that where I live gets seems about right.

    That’s a great site.

    We moved from Covent Garden (95/100) to rural Wiltshire (2/100).

    The walks round here are nice but don’t really take you to amenities.
