Historical Walking Tours with Rachel Kolsky

 

As part of the National Garden Scheme’s (NGS) annual event there is the unique opportunity to explore our local community neighbourhood, Connaught Village. The tour will be led by author, historian, and popular prize-winning Blue Badge Guide Rachel Kolsky. Nestling just west of Marble Arch and owned by the Hyde Park Estate you will discover the only surviving commercial stables in London, iconic post-WWII developments and ‘meet’ an array of fascinating residents - potter Lucie Rie, film critic Dilys Powell, Richard Branson and his Student magazine and the site of Delia Smith’s first restaurant job and more. 

 

The tour INCLUDES entry to the heritage listed Water Gardens and your place on the tour provides entry to the other three gardens (Coniston Court, Devonport and Quadrangle) within the Hyde Park Estate after your tour.
