Join us for free guided walks around one of South London's oldest thoroughfares, the Old Kent Road. Discover neglected landmarks, hidden histories, a wealth of industry, and a multitude of multicultural communities. See a different side to a place many people only know as 'the cheapest square on the Monopoly board'.
The Old Kent Road is has a rich history of pilgrimage and trade; today it’s home to a population of 35,000, as well as microbreweries, multicultural cafes, artists, manufacturers, evangelical churches, independent shops, and more. On our walks you'll get a sense of how this busy road, instead of being something that divides the area, could be something that unites it within Southwark's large-scale regeneration plans. How can proposed new developments occupy a boundary space between the past and future of the Old Kent Road?
The walks will run alongside the OKR Design Challenge, fostering a greater understanding of the area’s needs and identity, and helping shape plans for its future.
Walks last approximately two hours and are free to attend. Children welcome.
