Each person's connection to Wellington is unique to them
Widening access and opportunity is in our DNA at Wellington
The role of the Wellington Community is to build a supportive life-long community. We have developed a global professional and social network, deliver a diverse programme of events and offer invaluable careers support, guidance and mentoring opportunities. Another major part of our work is to raise funds for the Widening Opportunity programme to offer fully-funded Prince Albert Scholarships – to ensure we continue to be able to offer places to more young people with talent and promise the amazing opportunities that a Wellington education provides.
London Bridge Tube Station, 11.00am - 1.00pm
Join ex-Wellington parent and Qualified London Guide Rosalind Vincent for an in-person walk around Bermondsey. Nick-named The Land of Leather, Bermondsey has a rich industrial past where tanneries, biscuit factories and breweries once dominated. Sitting south-east of London Bridge, it has been an area of poverty, being badly hit by bombs aiming for the nearby docks during the war. Today, Bermondsey is experiencing a gentrification which has brought high-class hotels, art galleries and hipster-type cafés to this part of south London. Come and discover this exciting area which has its roots in an 11th century Abbey. To find out more about Rosalind, visit Home | Wide Eyed London
The walk will take two hours maximum and will go ahead whatever the weather. Tickets cost £20 per person and includes the fully guided tour.Book your place »
