July’s Walk to Nowhere and Historic Pub Social

Tuesday 23rd July, from 6.30pm
Garden of the Friends House, 173-177 Euston Road, NW1 2BJ

Please join the London Group on Tuesday 23rd July for our summer Walk to Nowhere. It will be led by Dr David Harrison, in conjunction with London Living Streets.

Starting in the gardens outside the Friends House, opposite Euston Station, we will explore the proposed Central London Walking Network which aims to create walking routes based on characterful, historic streets to produce a better environment for walking (see https://londonlivingstreets.com/central-london-walking-network/ ).

The walk will help us explore the development and redevelopment of Bloomsbury and Covent Garden. We will finish at the Wellington pub, 351 Strand at approximately 8pm.

Please feel free to join us at Friends House at 6.30 or at the Wellington from 8pm.
