Denmark Hill Railway Station | Map
Guided by Isobel
Short description: The Belgravia of South London.
Long description: Aesthetes, Assembly Rooms & Hidden Gardens. Something well and truly off the beaten path – that's what this Tour du Jour serves up. Called "the Belgravia of South London" by The Builder magazine, Denmark Hill, once home to John Ruskin, is a part of central London that just manages to retain a whiff of the countryside away from the busily commercial Camberwell Green. Most of the walk is "behind the scenes." The Denmark Hill and Camberwell you might have suspected existed but had yet to explore. Guided by prize-winning Blue Badge Guide Isobel. N.B. the walk takes about two hours and ends at Camberwell Green, which is served by a huge number of buses going everywhere! And Denmark Hill Railway Station is just a ten-minute walk away.
The Denmark Hill & Camberwell walk takes place at 10.45 am on Sunday, April 14 and at 10.45 am on Sunday, September 1. The meeting point is just outside the exit of Denmark Hill Overground Railway Station.
