The Capital Ring is one of two continuous orbital walking routes around London. The London Loop takes the outermost route, generally just within the Greater London boundary, and incorporates mostly rural, semi-rural and country park spaces. The Capital Ring is closer to the centre of London and links many of the parks and open spaces within the capital. Walking routes that span borough boundaries are coordinated by Walk London, part of Transport for London. Both routes are readily accessible by public transport.

Walk London divides the route into the following sections:
