LRG Historic Guided Walk - Chiswick Villa and Chiswick Village

Meet: Turnham Green Underground Station – District Line (For drivers, Chiswick House Car Park, on the A4)

Cost: Walk – LRG/£5; non-LRG/£10. Chiswick House - £7.50 (£5 concessions)*

NB: *plus further discount for group of 11 or more; free for English Heritage and Art Fund members

The walk will take in the brand new Chiswick Timeline, proceed along Turnham Green Terrace, Chiswick High Road with its many historic pubs, up the tree-lined Duke’s Avenue into Chiswick House and Gardens.

Chiswick House and Grounds, inspired by Palladio and Inigo Jones, with its famous conservatory and lake, was built in the 18th century by Lord Burlington to house his art collection and to serve as a place of entertainment. The House is an architectural marvel; the painting and décor inside quite sumptuous. The gardens are at once formal (with vistas, lawns, planted beds, statuary, a haw-haw) and informal (a beautiful lake, full of a great variety of birds, and woodlands). The House visit is optional – see price details above.

Lunch (also optional) in the Chiswick House Café; there is both indoor and outdoor seating.

In order to benefit from group rates, please let us know as soon as possible if you want to visit the House, as well as see the Gardens (free to visit).

LRG Guided Pub Walk: Historic pubs in and around Southwark

Meet: Blackfriars Station (District/Circle line and National Rail North exits - large ticket hall area, facing Blackfriars Bridge and Queen Victoria Street)

Cost: Free for LRG members; £5 for non-LRG members

Once again, we will be taken by our expert guide, Roger Bone, to a series of pubs in Southwark, on the south side of the River Thames. Roger will talk about the history of the pubs, including the Anchor and Market Porter Inns, Southwark Cathedral and other notable buildings and places of interest, along the way, and talk about the different beers we can sample en route!

The walk will include the historic but little-known Cross Bones and will end at the remarkable Grade 1 listed and only galleried inn in London, The George Inn, where there will also be the option to eat.

For homeward travel, The George Inn is close to Borough or London Bridge stations.
