What we're about
This group was primarily for short guided walks and it used to be led by London guide Rob Smith. While you can read about London history in books and online, nothing beats visiting historic locations and hearing stories at the places they actually happened. Victorian London was a place of amazing change, with people overcoming great challenges - the walks tell these stories. They last 1-2 hours and usually take place on evenings and weekends. They're really a social experience, there are lots of opportunities to talk and debate ideas with the event host and the other walkers.
As this group is now taken over, longer walks will be introduced in addition to the successful guided walks that will go on. These new walks will appeal to anyone who prefers more walking and less talking, and anyone else who wants to keep fit and enjoy a good social. Most walks take place in Victorian Parks such as 'Vicky' Park in Hackney, Crystal Palace... or in areas with a Victorian heritage.
