- Deans Yd, SW1P 3PA
- (Exact address will be provided after booking)
A walk through time focusing on people of African heritage .
The walk is taking place on Saturday 29th October 2022 at various times throughout the day: 11 am, 12 noon, 1:30pm and 2:30 pm.
Whilst we rightly celebrate the ‘Windrush generation’ who arrived in the UK from ‘the Caribbean’ after World War II we sometimes forget that the contributions of black people to this country dates back hundreds of years. On many occasions in the past this contribution has been overlooked.
On this walk we will open a window on a small part of the rich and interesting history of black people in London. We will encounter heroes and heroines of war, black Georgians and anti slavery campaigners. We will also learn about political trailblazers as well as those who have campaigned for racial justice up to the present day.
This walk was curated by Philip Scott and Dr Stephen King both qualified London guides.
The walk is in aid of a charity Farm Africa who support farmers in east Africa. All proceeds (minus the booking fee of c £1.15 ) will be donated to the charity.
Meet your Qualified City of Westminster Tour Guides outside Westminster Abbey by the tree outside the side (west entrance by the twin towers). The meeting point is by the tree, in front of the kiosk to the right.
The charitable walks are being offered throughout the day at the following times:
