Wednesday Walks

​Wednesday Walks - August - November, 2017

Our aim is to inform and entertain - join us on the first Wednesday of each month and we'll introduce you to places off the beaten track. All walks start at 11.00 am, finish by 1 pm and cost £10 per person.

From May to September, when the evenings are lighter, we plan to try evening walks and each walk will start at 6:00 PM.

You will be welcome to just turn up at the meeting point and pay on the day – if you would like details of the first couple of stops in case you might be running late, then please email the guide for that walk to let her know that you are intending to come and she will send you further information.;;;

Wednesday 2nd August - Notting Hill - 6:00pm START

From Potteries and Piggeries, grand estates, and an unsuccessful racecourse, Notting Hill has come a long way from a mid-18th century country hamlet. On this walk, we will explore it’s fascinating history and find out about it’s famous residents, without a mention of that film!

Wednesday 6th September - Kings Cross - 6:00 pm START

A lot has happened in the King's Cross area since our last walk here. Come and find out about recent changes which include: a canal boat which is now a book shop; a granary which is now a university and a gasometer which is now a park. King's Cross has a rich and variedhistory and the mix of the old and new gives the area a unique character.
