The Kings Cross Spring Walk will be taking place on an orbital route around the Kings Cross and St Pancras area on Sunday May 15th. The route for this free walk takes in the site of London’s first monorail, the place where elephants were once unloaded for the Kings Cross circus, the inventor of the tea break; Lenin’s Kings Cross house; the March of the Bricks and Mortar; one of London’s most surprising nature reserves, the graves of the founders of anarchism and feminism and the radical history of Somerstown. And some new stories are slowly emerging about the area from a variety of sources not least from people who come on this walk.
This is the sixth time since 2004 that I have led this walk and the plan is for us to complete the walk in two and half hours and then have a quick drink and a bite to eat at The Harrison pub in Harrison Street. I will book a table.
Please feel free to invite friends. We will head off from the outdoor gym at the southern end of Argyle Square at 11am. Please call me Tobias on 07870 745510 if you have any questions or want to ensure that we wait for you.
We should finish the walk at about 1.30 (ish).
Looking foward to seeing you all there. Its a fascinating little sociable local urban walk with a little bit of magical greenery and water in the middle of it.
