#London Walks Walk of the Week: South #Kensington


Every Sunday we’ll pluck just one walk from the vast London Walks repertoire and put it centre stage.






You can check out the full schedule at www.walks.com.






But if you only take one walking tour this week, why not make it…


Seventh Heaven in SW7

South Kensington Tube – Meet just beyond the ticket barrier



Albertopolis, Alcazar & Alcoves in SW7. Fairy dust. Seven no trumps. Slice after slice of unreality. Carousel. Green matrix. Cultural Core. Urbane village. Mews and views to die for. Tot it up how you will this is the least likely neighbourhood in an unlikely city. It's a cabinet of curiosities: campanile, President Kennedy's house, the SAS, 140 billion frozen peas, Darwin, a Russian cathedral, South American shrunken heads, the weird subway that inspired the greatest London poem ever, Shackleton and Livingstone, a quarter of a million butterflies, the Apollo 10 command module, meteorites, earthquake simulator, Crystal Palace - let alone those secret, painter's palette mews (which you'd never find off your own bat) and the most astonishing piece of "countryside" you'll ever see - woodland, fen, pond, chalk downland, meadow - right in the heart of London.

Guided by Margaret or Fiona.
