Georgian Riverside and the Arts and Crafts Movement
Guided Tour | The Dove
Wednesday 2 April 2014 - 10:45 until 13:15
A Blue Bade guided walk spanning the Arts & Crafts and Aesthetics Movements, starting in Bedford Park, designed by Norman Shaw and considered to be the world's first garden suburb. The tour will pass 19t century workers' cottages, before moving to the 15th century Chiswick riverside village - known in particular for St Nicholas Church, which contains Hogarth's grave.
The rest of the walk takes place along the river, exploring the 18th century houses of Chiswick Mall, including the house where William Morris set up his Kelmscott press and the headquarters of the William Morris Society. The tour will end with lunch at the historic riverside Dove Pub, the haunt of many famous poets and writers, and the site of the smallest bar room in the world.
