Next Meetup

Brixton to Chelsea
This walk is about 6 miles and you will need to be fairly fit and enjoy walking. We will take a walk around some of Brixton Cultural landmarks; then head over to Clapham, down to Battersea Park, where we can stop for a break & a warm drink in the park cafe. (or you can bring your own flask & sandwich ) Then we head over Albert Bridge to the charming Worlds End. here Vivien Westwood Shop still exists. It has been through many changes, from Granny takes a trip; A hangout for The Rolling Stones, then it was SEX; where John Lydon appeared and formed an alliance with Sid vicious forming the Sex Pistols. Going back into older times we walk ​back down to Old Church Street, to the Thomas More Statue, then past Chelsea Embankment walking to the Chelsea Physic Gardens;(they do daily tours should anyone want to visit) I did a brief course with them when I worked in Chelsea, it is a fascinating place to get an insight into the power of plants; and the history of plants. I would totally recommend a tour, but maybe another time. Then we can get back onto the Kings Road. finishing at Sloane Square.
