It's a lovely walk and is occasionally spoilt by Undesirables that can be found drinking along the Cow Tower stretch.

You can park either near the Adam & Eve pub behind the cathedral or you can probably park at the Red LIon pub on Bishopsgate. Hope you can make it there, lovely at the moment with the daffodils out.
