In the Footsteps of Soane

posted in: Events | 0

On Civic Day, Saturday 22 June, we are planning a repeat of our walk from Pitzhanger Manor to the Soane Museum in Holborn. This is a walk which John Soane regularly undertook, between his country and town houses. See the picture (left which compares his route and our route). We’re leaving at 10.00 sharp from outside the entrance gate at the front of Pitzhanger Manor, so please assemble here at 9.45 if you are planning to come with us. We’ll be stopping for coffee at the Bush Theatre Library Bar at 11.00. At 13.30 (ish) we’ll stop for lunch at The Marlborough Head Pub North Row Mayfair. We hope to arrive the Sir John Soane’s museum at 15.15 for a visit to the museum and/or tea in the Fields café (remember to ask for 15% discount when at the café). The total length of the walk is 8.5 miles. We have a handout with 60 points of interest to watch out for on the way. All are welcome on the walk.
