Meet your guide – here’s Ann’s agreeable little talk about her Brook Green Walk.

Oh the fun, the delight, the satisfaction of opening up to view – of getting to know – a fascinating London neighbourhood that’s a complete revelation to you, that you hadn’t the foggiest about.

Peaceful green space lined with C19 houses for the middle classes. And around the corner – the grandest bank in London. Let alone the greatest exhibition hall. Gentlefolk were helped in this quiet west London backwater. Your parents’ curtains were probably designed here. There’s the school whose many now-famous pupils were taught music by one of the most celebrated of English composers. Then there were the cakes – 36 miles of swiss roll a week from the bakery. And what happens when you call the prince a fat Adonis of 50? It’s not good news…

    This was a lovely walk with a congenial, knowledgeable guide. Ann introduced us to wonderful buildings I would not have found on my own. An excellent two hours.

  2. Jo Lloyd

    What a gem of a walk about a ‘hidden’ part of London. Ann was a superb guide. Informative about and around her subject and fun to be with.

  3. John S

    I would like to thank Ann for an excellent walk, it shed light on an area of London I knew very little about and was really enjoyable.

  4. Anne C

    What a fun, informative walk. Ann really give great background information on the area. A wonderful way to spend a Sunday morning.
