The Lambeth Walk

Come and do 'The Lambeth Walk' with Helen and discover its rich history of palaces, pottery, pleasure gardens, bishops, Blake, Bedlam and Bligh, plus art galleries and alpacas.
Originally recorded in 1062 as Lambehitha the 'landing place for lambs' the area was known as Lambeth by 1255. This tour is a great way to get to know more about an area of London you thought you already knew or to discover a new one and you get to see very cute alpacas.

We will finish the walk in a nice old pub where walkers can join Helen for a drink or have lunch together if they wish.
