Walk yourself happy

It's quicker to walk

By the time you’ve found the car, driven there, parked and walked in, it’s often quicker by foot or wheelchair, and there are plenty of ways to make it fun. It's also direct, no getting stuck in traffic so you can rely on your journey time always being the same.

And it’ll make you feel good.
