London Walks

Our walks this year will be led by Anthony Davis, a qualified guide and an expert on the literature and history of London. The first term will be ‘Almost all about books’, including a bibliophile’s tour of St James’s, another around the area of Westminster that Dickens called ‘Devil’s Acre’ and an exploration of Bloomsbury with a difference. The second term will be ‘Mostly Mansions’, looking at the big houses of Hampstead, Mayfair and elsewhere. And in Summer, we will visit areas where social change has influenced architecture, like Somers Town and St Giles’s.
