(The meeting point is a great place to watch the Horseguards riding past at 10.35am. The nearest tube station is Hyde Park Corner on the Piccadilly Line, or there is a bus from Victoria.)

It is one hundred years since the end of the First World War. London’s monumental heritage is very rich. Many of these are those dedicated to war. The Cenotaph in Whitehall is known to all but there are many others. Hyde Park Corner has become an island of War Memorials including the inspiring one dedicated to The Royal Artillery, the first to depict the brutality of war. The memorials vary from individuals to groups, glory to despair, small and large. At the time of their construction many caused controversy.

The walk will include memorials of wars from 19th to the 21st centuries and will be conducted by Sarah Fordham. It will end in Westminster.

This event has been organised by the Kent Fundraising Committee Volunteer Fundraising Committee to help raise money for the Art Fund.

Meeting point: The Lodge Café, Hyde Park Corner

149 Piccadilly, London, London, W1J 7NT
