Short read: The Belgravia of South London.
Long read: 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.
