The Borough Walk with Old Maps


This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.


Join Ken Titmuss for a walk with old maps exploring one of London's oldest neighbourhoods.

Lost burial grounds, fragments of an industrual past and a secret garden right by some beautiful Octavia Hill cottages.

Trace where a young Charles Dickens lodged in Lant Street and how the fearsome Bella Burge transformed a chapel into London's most celebrated boxing venue.

The wall of the Marshalsea debtors' prison and the secret life of a hat factory also feature.
