Walking the Elephant

My next local, public walk will be 2nd March around the Elephant and Castle. Reviled as one of the least attractive areas of London, the Elephant is far more than two roundabouts and a major traffic hub. Just yards from the busy roads you will find more than one surprising oasis of calm. And change has come to the Elephant. The old swimming baths have gone; the Mayor of London is considering granting permission for a tower block on the site of Eileen House, opposite the Ministry of Sound, which might well sound the death knell for this globally renowned club; local people are locked in debates about how they want their neighbourhood to develop. Meanwhile investors have woken up to the good communications and central location of the Elephant.

So join me to find out Moreland walk the Elephant, no buns required. We’ll meet outside the Bakerloo Line exit of the underground on London Road at 2.30. The cost is £9 for adults, £7 for over 65s and full-time students, and the walk lasts around two hours.

  1. Another one of Isobel’s walks South of the River which reveal just how lovely and how central the areas are, and the most beautiful and quiet streets within sight of a busy thoroughfare. A lovely afternoon.

    • Glad you enjoyed it Linda. It was good to see you. Will you be back to retrace your steps and take photos?
