London Bridge Revealed – Green Spaces (Guided Walk)

During June the Museum of Walking will lead an eclectic series of walks focusing on some of the key characteristics that make up London Bridge’s past, present and future: its riverside, railway and greenery, and its unique heritage medical and leisure heritage.

Inevitably with the myriad of roads and proliferation of railway lines, the area has ‘pocket parks’ or legacy gardens and churchyards, some of which are almost invisible (obscured by railway lines, arches and buildings) or difficult to access as one needs to cross busy roads. Many of these parks and gardens had former uses or were laid out when more formal leisure was desired. It is clear that whilst construction continues, ‘meanwhile’ spaces may be available to be made into parks or gardens. The value of the recent Potters Field and the redesign of St Thomas’ Street as a boulevard will be explored on this walk.

Join for a free interactive guided walk in the company of Paul Wood, author of the acclaimed “London Street Trees” we will explore the alleyways, gardens, pocket parks and tree-lined streets that create a green grid in the area.

The walk is free of charge, but we ask that you book a place through the link provided. The exact meeting point will be announced here before the walk.
