Walk of the Week: NEW The Squares of #Chelsea



Every Sunday we’ll pluck just one walk from the vast London Walks
repertoire and put it centre stage.




You can check out the full schedule at www.walks.com.




But if you only take one walking tour this week, why not make it…





The Squares of Chelsea

10:45a.m Sloane Square Tube

Saturday 6th August 2016

Guided by Gary

Chelsea isn't just the King's Road and Cheyne Walk and the Royal Hospital. It's got an archipelago of some of the most beautiful - and interesting - squares in all of London.

And what's hugely to the point here, they're little known gems.


This new walk - created and guided by Gary - explores that archipelago. Their history, what's special about them, who lived - and lives - in them. Good walk.



Meet Gary at Sloane Square tube 10:45a.m on Saturday 6th August 2016

Tyburn Convent in Hyde Park Place…

Father Gunne made his prophesy in 1585 when St Endmond Campion was sentenced to death at Tyburn…


“You have slain the greatest man in England. I will add that one day there, where you have put him to death, a religious house will arise, thanks to an important offering.”
