Join our ‘Move and Muse-Walk Through History’ event

‘Move and Muse-Walk’ project in Central London starts in March, led by London Advocacy and HRS, promoting history and community. Our project titled ‘Move and Muse-Walking Through History in Central London’ starts in March. The community walking and support project, run jointly by London Advocacy and Human Rights Solidarity (HRS), will give participants the opportunity to explore the historical and cultural richness of London. It also aims to improve participants’ physical and mental health, teach them new skills and build stronger links with the local community.

 

Funded by the London Marathon Foundation and Transport for London, an expert tour guide will explain the highlights of British history. The events, which will be limited to central London, will take place on the 2nd Saturday of each month and will last approximately 4 hours (11:00-14:00) including breaks.

Details about the programme are as follows:

  •  Participation in the programme with the family will be accepted.
  • We can accept a maximum of 25 participants for each trip. As we anticipate high demand, participants will be accepted in order of registration.
  • The hike will be led by a certified tour guide. During the hike, participants will be provided with headphones and will have the opportunity to listen to the guide’s narration remotely.
  • Participants will receive a certificate of participation (provided they have participated in at least 5 walks).
  • Most of the walks will take place in historic and tourist attractions in central London.
  • There will be no refreshments on the walks, but there will be a coffee break at the end of the programme.
