Activity

This 5 mile walk follows the route of the hidden Westbourne Brook from Little Venice to Chelsea. After coffee by the canal, we will visit the extended Paddington station and several preserved mews through Bayswater. We then cross Hyde Park taking in some of the art works along the way. We continue south through the quiet lanes of Knightsbridge with a coffee break within a hidden courtyard by the original Pantechnicon. After pausing at the last home of Judy we stroll through Belgravia; embassies and impressive churches on the way. Last leg is through Chelsea ending at the grand Baroque style Royal Chelsea Hospital designed by Wren in 1682.
