William Blake's Lambeth


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

I wander thro' each charter'd street,
Near where the charter'd Thames does flow.
And mark in every face I meet
Marks of weakness, marks of woe.

William Blake is one of Britain's most world-renowned poets, artists and thinkers.

His life in Westminster is widely celebrated, yet his decade in Lambeth from 1790 to 1800, when he produced arguably his greatest works, is undervalued and little known.

Discover the traces of Blake's Lambeth with archivist Jon Newman.

The walk lasts one and a half hours.

Part of the Lambeth Readers and Writers Festival.
