Each person’s connection with Wellington will be unique to them...
...but what we all have in common is a care and a passion for its future...
...together, we are Wellington.
10.15am, St James, London
Newly introduced to the programme are a series of London Walking Tours specifically for Wellington parents. Join us as City of Westminster Guide, Lou Cohen, takes us through the different districts and shares her wealth of knowledge about one of London’s most iconic boroughs.
St James’s was once part of Green Park and St James’s Park but in the 1660s King Charles II gave the right to develop the area to Henry Jermyn, for Noble Men and other Persons of quality. It has the highest concentrations of listed buildings in England, but it was the people who lived in these properties that make it an interesting area of London. St James’s has traditionally been associated with gentlemen’s clubs, some were renowned for their gambling, whilst others have a more dignified reputation, such as The Travellers Club. Today the area has changed as fine art galleries have moved in to sell their artefacts near long established wine merchants and cheese suppliers, whilst the Court of St. James’s remains at its heart.
Meeting point – by the statue of Diana, the huntress, in Green Park, south of Piccadilly and by the south exit of Green Park Underground station at 10.15am for a 10.30am start. The tour shall last approx. 1hr 45 mins and will go ahead whatever the weather. Spaces are limited to 20 people. Tickets are £14 per person.
