Join us at our next event:

Enjoy an Autumn meander by the Thames
Saturday, 22nd Oct 2016, 2pm
Discover sites and stories during a walk along the Strand and Embankment with our guide Joe Studman.
In pre reformation days the Strand was home to the palaces of Bishops when they came to Court or Parliament. Queens, Courtiers and Favourites used them until turned into Government Offices or Georgian Housing. Later Bazalgette's Embankment separated them from the waterfront and gave green spaces filled with surprising sculptures.
Meet Embankment Station, Villiers Street exit
