The walks series planned for 2023 are set out in brief on ‘The Walks’ tab. Click on 'More info' to see the time and place to meet and for a brief summary of each walk.
The walks programme in 2023 will once again range across London, from Teddington Lock in the west, to ancient woodland in the east. Hear about stories that range from a folly celebrating the capture of a pirate fortress, markets in the City and the house where the silk for Queen Victoria’s dress was woven. The Smithfield walk passes the oldest house in central London and we see the home of the central meat market before it moves to Dagenham in 2026. A visit to the British Museum reveals famous artefacts from many civilisations. We shall identify halls used by the mediaeval City Livery Companies, visit a memorial to Heroic Self Sacrifice and see masterpiece paintings in the National Gallery.
Also look at the ‘Talks’ tab to see the line-up for Zoom talks. This is a regular series once a month on a Tuesday evening. The programme this year will include the Docklands riverside, Horses & Carriages and survivals from Regency London. You can also arrange a live presentation or Zoom talk for your club or society - a range of topics is available that cover many aspects of history and places in London.
Whether taking walks or listening to talks, it is the remarkable lives of people who once lived in London that create the most profound interest. Walks and Talks are a great way to get to know London better and we hope to seeing you at one or another.
