London Walking Tour: The Grand Surrey Canal

London, meet at Surrey Quays on DLR at 11am.

Join Lou Cohen, a City of Westminster London walking tour guide to find out more about The Grand Surrey Canal.

The Grand Surrey Canal was an ambitious project to link the Thames to Croydon and Epsom and the south coast.  It joined the Thames at Greenland Dock, a much older ship dock than St Katharine’s and just along the river was the site of the Royal Navy Victualling Yard.  Step back in time with Lou Cohen to explore this old part of London to see the place where Raleigh laid his cloak for Queen Elizabeth I and how the area played its part in World War II.

Tickets cost £18 per person and includes the fully guided tour.

The Wellington Community is delighted to host a Careers Speed Networking event on Saturday 15th October.

We are always grateful to any parents and OWs who can offer their support and would love to give the students the opportunity to network and talk through practical next steps with members of the Wellington Community. It would be hugely helpful and beneficial for our students to be able to speak to parents and OWs, from as many varied professions as possible, as well as anyone who has had an unusual career path or strayed far from their original degree plans.
