The Historic Houses, Gardens, and Walks Gay Group

The group aims to bring together gay people who are interested in the history and architecture of London and the Home Counties. It has been operating for over a decade. The programme consists mainly of walks in the various districts of London, though there may also be occasional visits to historic properties, museums and gardens.

There is no membership fee nor any charge for the walks. Also, there is no need to book in advance The emphasis is on informality. In summer the walks usually begin at about 2.00 p.m. and in winter at about 1.30 p.m. They normally last about a couple of hours, or so, usually finishing at a convenient pub. (The pub attendance is not compulsory!) Typically 30 plus people attend these walks.

Walks normally start and finish near an Underground, Overground, DLR, or Rail station, though very occasionally a short bus journey may be involved. A provisional programme for much of 2017 is given below but this programme may be subject to change in the weeks preceding each monthly walk, so please regularly check the website for updates.
