Guided Walks for Easter Holidays

Enjoy the outdoors locally!

Stay local, walk local this Easter with the Brunel Museum

Drawing on the richness of the museum’s location and local history we are exploring and extending our core Brunel stories, which link to the museum as a cultural & social hub for the Rotherhithe community.

We are revisiting some topics for our family walks and adding some new tours. The Victorian Rotherhithe walk will take families back to 1843 when Rotherhithe was a lively village with workhouses, docks, shipbuilders, and families will hear about its residents, from mudlarks, coal whippers, deal porters, and the Brunels of course!

The Rotherhithe Garden City walk will explore Southwark Park, one of the London’s green corridors that links the Thames with a network of quays & waterways, its origins and what it has witnessed – from women’s industrial action and plane crashes to mass demonstrations in support of temperance!
