'Rugby, Rock Stars & a River – Historic Twickenham' Guided Walk
Come along on Saturday 21st April for a Blue Badge Guided Walk around Twickenham in West London! We have 2 guides and we will be starting the walk in 15 minute gaps, so please indicate which time/guide you wish to go with when you RSVP. If you've never attended before, both the guides are extremely good and qualified Blue Badge Guides, so just choose a random time (when you RSVP it might default to 2:00pm for the time to attend, but just ignore that and just come along at your chosen time). About the walk & the area Excavations have revealed settlements in the area dating from the Early Neolithic period, which seems to have continued through the Bronze and Iron Age and onto the Roman occupation. The area was first mentioned as "Tuican hom" and "Tuiccanham" in an 8th-century charter to cede the area to Waldhere, Bishop of London, "for the salvation of our souls". The charter, dated 13 June 704, is signed with 12 crosses. Best known as the home of English Rugby, Twickenham has many hidden treasures. The eccentricities of Eel Pie Island with its rock history, a lovely riverside promenade, a 17th century town hall with wood panelled rooms which was once a private house, homes of French aristocrats, historic pubs and an old village street all feature on this tour of one of London’s lesser known suburbs. The walk is a private walk for the group, we will split into 2 groups and we will be guided by Rosemary Pollard (2:00pm) & Diane Burstein (2:15pm). It will last about 2 hours. Cost for the guided walk is £7 per person for Full Members of the group and £9 per person for everyone else (payable on the day). Go here to become a Full Member - Afterwards we will head to the Barmy Arms pub, The Embankment for a chat over a drink. Please note, we will only wait at the station for 10 minutes after the advertised meeting time so please be early or on time. Look out for the blue & red 'London Cultureseekers' group sign outside the station. Hope to see you there! Robert[masked] (prefer text)

What we're about

Public Group

Welcome to the London Cultureseekers Group!

If you're interested in exploring London's history & culture with other like minded people, then this is the only group you need to join! We are London's largest cultural and history group!

We meetup 2-3 times a week to explore museums, art galleries, historical buildings, go on guided walks and history talks. We also have historic treasure hunts, visit the theatre, have coffee evenings, social evenings, meals and attend classical music concerts. In the summer we also have day trips outside of the capital by train or coach to explore historical towns and walks in the countryside.

The group is very friendly, we have members from 20 to 80 years old, across all backgrounds. The group has been running for over 11 years and is a great way to meet and make new friends. Plus after events we always head to a local pub or cafe to chat.
