Regent's Park to Camden

a charity guided walk by Denise Arnold
Saturday April 20th, 11am to 1pm

A free walk in aid of the Humph Trust for young jazz musicians

Booking (free) essential, we will take an envelope collection for the Trust. Recommended donation for wage earners £10.

A wonderful variety of architecture, planned open space and historical detail all in a short walk!

We will be finding out about the Regency and the names of places associated with the period. We will look at the superb gardens and plant diversity at the Royal College of Physicians. And, of course, take in Denys Lasdun's amazing building. Daphne du Maurier fans will be pleased to see her childhood home and imagine her life as she lived mostly upstairs, looking out of the window to see her parents' friends horse-riding in the park after she had her daily walk. From the Nash villas we make our way to Cumberland Basin and discuss the canal system and its importance. Then we proceed into Camden while learning about the HS2 development and the possible effects in the area.

The splendid "Cats" building is next on the list and we will discuss its uses and the design features. At Mornington Crescent we hear about the game by the same name and the legacy of Humphrey Lyttelton. After seeing Oakley Square and how the squares changed London we arrive at the Working Mens' College and talk about the architecture, heritage and present day relevance of this facility. We finish at St Pancras station after seeing the Royal Veterinary College and the unique St Pancras Old Church.

A must for all fans of architecture and social history!
