Originally set up for the Her Majesty the Queen's Silver Jubilee in 1977, the Jubilee Walk was relaunched for the Queen's Golden Jubilee in 2002. This is a grand tour on foot of London's leading attractions, taking in the National Gallery, Trafalgar Square, Houses of Parliament, The London Eye, Bank of England, St Paul's Cathedral and many more. Many of these are lit up so the walk can be taken after dark as well as during the day.

Panoramic panels were introduced in 1980, not only on the Walkway itself, but also on the Embankment and on many of London's bridges to identify the buildings along the way. These have been unveiled by many distinguished people including The Queen and Nelson Mandela.

The route is way-marked with silver discs set into the pavements with the dome of St Paul's Cathedral overlaid on the Crown and the words Jubilee Walkway.
