Walks and talks for lip readers in London

Actors, Oarsmen and Artists – Historic Hammersmith
Sunday 18th July 2010, 11.00am – 1.00pm

As these walks are now rather popular please book early to avoid disappointment as we are limiting the number of the group to 25 people.
Also be aware that we are starting the walk half an hour earlier than usual, at 11.00am.

*Meet outside Hammersmith tube exit from Piccadilly and District Line Tube on Hammersmith Broadway, next to the Benneton store*

We are looking forward to seeing you on what we are sure will be a very interesting look at an area with lots of history and excitement right up to the present day, with great views along the river and ending in a green and pleasant park.

Walk with Diane Burstein, London Blue Badge Guide

Passing Hammersmith by road or rail people often don’t realise that the River Thames flows through this area which holds some delightful secrets. Theatres, film locations, an elegant square, two churches, an exclusive school with some famous ex pupils and, of course, a riverside walkway with great views all feature. Hear of some actors, writers and artists past and present who have made Hammersmith their home. Learn the history of the famous Oxford v Cambridge boat race while passing the many sailing clubs which line this part of the river. Discover a bridge which is a great survivor and find out why some Hammersmith residents should have avoided the funeral of one of England’s most popular royals.

Lipspeaker & SSE provided for Diane’s walk.

Tickets £6.00 per person, payable in advance.

Advance booking essential. To book and to join the mailing list, leave a comment here and I will send you details.

On Wednesday, September 8th, 2010 we are offering a mid week walk for the first time. Legal London will take us into places that are not open to visitors at the weekends and for which we have asked permission to view. The booking form for this walk will be sent out at the beginning of July. The start time will be 10.45 am prompt at Temple Tube station. More details next month!
