It is time for the Walworth walk to have its summer outing. On the London Walks programme you’ll find it listed as Chaplin, Cricket and Artists and see it starts at Kennington tube station at 10.45 8th June.
The artists bit is a reason to bring some cash with you. Because this is a walk that always ties in with Open Studios at Pullens Yards. On this year’s flyer they have quoted an endorsement from Terence Conran, though I admit I’ve never seen him there myself.
Walworth could win a forgotten London competition. It is so central, yet so unknown. For those of us lucky enough to live here, it’s a vibrant, friendly neighbourhood.
The Electric Elephant will be serving food and drinks, the Beehive will serve you a nice pint and if you need a bit of canine comfort, Husky Studios have the biggest, most cuddlesome dogs in the district.
Meet me for a 10.45 start outside Kennington tube station. The walk lasts around two and a half hours and costs £9 per adult, £7 for over 65s and full-time students. I’ll be wearing my Blue Badge and be holding a bunch of London Walks leaflets.
