Back in March, the London Peaks Relay, organised by Runner’s World, saw a team of runners visit the highest point in every London borough within 24 hours. Starting at Westerham Heights in Bromley – 70cm higher than the observation deck of The Shard – the 150-mile route corkscrewed inwards to the summit of the City of Westminster.
Did you know that at the highest point in Croydon, someone has marked the spot by building a tree fort? Or that the highest point in Newham is a former dry ski slope? Not all the peaks have incredible views: the summit of Tower Hamlets is a Shoreditch backstreet. But they do offer 32 new ways to get high in London. Rick Pearson
