HAPPY NEW YEAR  everyone, hope you enjoyed the festive time.  Here are a few walks I will be doing during January.

THURSDAY 13 JANUARY 10 am:  MUSEUMS AND A PALACE  A new walk.  The walk starts at Kensington Palace and then weaves its way through Kensington Gardens to Exhibition Road which is full of London’s most famous museums.

WEDNESDAY 19 JANUARY 10 am: THE ARTISTS OF HOLLAND PARK  Some of the most famous British artists of the Victorian era lived in houses designed by the top architects of the day in this quiet corner of Holland Park

SATURDAY 22 JANUARY 10 am: CAMPDEN HILL  Originally known as 'The Racks' the delightful cottages were part of the Campden estate which by the 18th century was owned by the Phillimore family.   The walk takes you past a former large waterworks on the summit of Campden Hill to where the world's largest telescope once stood and finally reaches the quiet gardens behind St. Mary Abbott's church.

FRIDAY 28 JANUARY 10 am:  KEW VILLAGE  Once home to royalty and nobles, this former small fishing hamlet is now famous for its magnificent botanic garden.  And lovely views across the river to Strand on the Green.



I have also written some books which take you on a photographic and historical trip around west London and make a perfect Christmas gift so do contact me if you would like a signed copy, special price £20.   The titles in the “Wild about” series cover the following areas:   Chelsea, Fulham, Hammersmith with Brook Green, Shepherd’s Bush with Askew Road, Notting Hill with North Kensington, Richmond, Kew. 


London is my home and west London is where I have lived for most of my life, my walks are informal, full of interesting and unusual facts and, most of all, are to be enjoyed. If you would like a private walk, maximum six people, I am very happy to arrange this for a day and time to suit you, email me for more information.

Most walks take about two hours and a donation of £10 is suggested which goes towards supporting two local charities, The Upper Room and Hammersmith Community Gardens Association, they have suffered over recent months due to the lockdowns so any additional donation is very welcome.

Keep safe.
