Old Holland Park Village

Notting Hill Gate tube station, London

Guided by Alison

Short version. Sweeping stuccoed terraces. Mews cottages. Red-brick mansions. Holland Park itself. Lots for the eye to get hold of here. Let alone the mind’s eye.

Long version. All of the above and (the remains of) Holland House. And Beckingham Palace (no, that’s not a typo or misprint). And the open-air theatre. And the Commonwealth Institute. And the biography of the neighbourhood – it’s as tasty as any in London. And the pedigree stretching back to Shakespeare’s day and age. Goes on.There’s that execution. There’s the Holland Park Circle. There’s the Luftwaffe’s contribution. There’s the IQ level of the residents – “in the Holland ward the proportion of adults qualified to degree level or higher is almost three times the national average.” There’s the close call JFK’s daughter had. It’s, well, a highlights reel of history. But finally we come back to this: because of the variety of public and private splendour in the park and its surrounding streets Holland Park Village is one of London’s loveliest place to walk. And live.

BEHIND CLOSED DOORS – THE PRACTICALS

The Old Holland Park Village walk takes place at 2.30 pm on Sxxxxxxxx. The meeting point is just outside Holland Park Tube.

LONDON WALKS PRIVATE WALKS

If you can’t make one of the regularly scheduled, just-turn-up, public Mountain Building & Meteorites in the City of London walks it can always be booked as a private tour. If you go private you can have the Old Holland Park Village walk – or any other London Walk – on a day and at a time that suits your convenience. We’ll tailor it to your requirements. Ring Fiona or Noel or Mary on 020 7624 3978 or email us at privatewalks@walks.com and we’ll set it up and make it happen for you. A private London Walk – they’re good value for an individual or couple and sensational value for a group – makes an ideal group or educational or birthday party or office (team-building) or club outing.

GIVE THE GIFT OF LONDON WALKS

A private London Walk makes a fab gift – be it a birthday or anniversary or Christmas present or whatever. Merchandise schmerchandise (gift wrapped or not) – but giving someone an experience, now that’s special. Memories make us rich.

LONDON WALKS – STREETS AHEAD!

Don’t just take it from us.
