History Walk in Dulwich

Wednesday 1st August 2018

Meet at 7.20pm for 7.30pm Start

Meet at North Dulwich Station

We will be making the most of the summer by going outside for a local history walk. Our guide, Lulu Martin-David, is an official guide for the City of Westminster and so knows a thing or two about London. She will take us on a fascinating tour, telling us about some of Dulwich’s famous old residents, giving us insight into the architecture of some of our wonderful historic buildings, Dulwich’s role at times of war and much more. It will be more of a stroll than a long walk, but will take 1 1/2 hours as we stop at various points on the way.

There are so many amazing sites and buildings in Dulwich which we all take for granted, so we can’t wait to delve into their past. We have lots of questions, like: Who are the famous and infamous alumni of Dulwich College? Why did the first art gallery of its kind in the world end up here? How on earth did Edward Alleyn earn his fortune? Who’s buried in the Dulwich Picture Gallery Mausoleum and why are they there? And many, many more. Come along and have your eyes opened to what a great place we live in, and how it became the Dulwich we know and love today.

We’ll start from North Dulwich station and end up at The Crown & Greyhound for a drink or two! This really is the perfect event for an August heatwave!

What to Bring

Flat Shoes –  comfortable for walking.

Umbrella/Waterproof Jacket – showers are currently predicted for early evening so might be worth bringing along a brolly – we’d suggest checking the forecast before you come.

Water – if it’s still hot then keep hydrated!

A Friend – you’re welcome to bring along a friend. They just need to pay a £3 guest fee on the night.
