How long does it take to walk from London Bridge to Fenchurch Street?
Is there a bus?

Eminently walkable: around 15 minutes at normal walking pace.

There is no bus to Fenchurch Street, but you can get them to the junction with Gracechurch Street; I wouldn't bother as a matter of course.

Used to walk it most days some years ago, alternatively you can always get train to Cannon Street, then its not quite as far but the time it takes the train to go from LB to CS you can be half way there on foot across London Bridge, but not so nice on wet days

8 years I did that for right through to 88 Fenchurch st, opposite Aldgate pump. You can expect some fast breathless walks of less than 15 mins at times.

PS: you can get to Euston in less than 25 mins as well.

Very walkable, do it every time I come to football.

Where are you going to work? I work just off FS and get the train home from there

Ahem.

The 40 goes over London Bridge and right the way up Fenchurch Street!

It is a pleasant enough walk however if it isn't raining.

the queues for buses at LB always put me off.

And walking is better for you, and cheaper too

When I first started this route I walked it.. 20 mins
after a few years I started getting the RV1.. the Lazy B'stards bus..
Now I use a scooter to commute as I could not stand the trains to and from LB to EC any longer.. much better for it
