Brick Lane Bookshop presents ‘Sunday Strolls: So you want to go to Columbia Road?’
August 6 @ 12:00 pm – August 9 @ 1:30 pm
Brick Lane Bookshop presents ‘Sunday Strolls: So you want to go to Columbia Road?’, an alternative guided tour of one of the East End’s most popular destinations.
So, you want to go to Columbia Road? And who can blame you? That nice young couple with a baby struggling to push a fully grown palm tree onto a number eight bus tells you you’re not far from Britain’s biggest flower and plant market, which only trades on Sunday mornings. But we’re not going to take the direct route. We’re going to follow some diverting diversions which show how much secret history can be found down some seemingly nondescript side streets any day of the week.
Join us for a ninety-minute walk of paths, turnings, and tales less told. You’ll visit a graffiti gallery most visitors miss, see a sad, inspirational statue, and meet two extraordinary characters, one nasty and one nice!
FOR TWO WEEKENDS ONLY – SUNDAY THE 6th AND 13th OF AUGUST AT NOON.
Tours start at Brick Lane Bookshop and are limited to small groups, so please book early to avoid disappointment.
Please note although not a long walk, the route includes two sets of stairs.
