I’m dusting the pollen off my notes ready for the next outing of the Walworth Walk, or if you are looking at the current London Walks programme, Nook and Crannies in Charlie Chaplin’s London.
It starts at 10.45 on Sunday 3rd June from outside Kennington tube station.
Walworth is one of those parts of London that really merits the ‘hidden’ tag. Amazingly central, it is also amazingly unknown. Yet this is where Chaplin claimed he was born, where the Surrey County Cricket Club had its origins, and a fine John Soane church stands.
There used to be a zoo here too, but that’s long gone. In its place there’s Pasley Park.
Don’t you love the sign?
The walk lasts around two hours, it costs £9, or £7 for concessions. Keep you fingers crossed for fine weather.
