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…
