Starting at the site of the Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens of 1785, this guided tour led by Stephen Bull will be visiting some grand squares such as Princes Square, built in the 1760s and now known as Cleaver Square, which leads to the grand Kennington Park Road (c.1783), and will compare the Square to the modest Courtenay Square built in the early twentieth century by the Duchy of Cornwall in a neo-Georgian style.
Part of a series of four walks from Vauxhall to Southwark. London’s South Bank has always been London’s pleasure ground and Stephen Bull, a long-time resident of the area and a repairer of Georgian buildings, will be looking at the Georgian development of the South Bank from Vauxhall to Southwark in a series of walks to enlighten, educate and amuse. The other walks in the series are:
13 April: Kennington to Lambeth North
4 May: Lambeth North to Waterloo
8 June: Waterloo to Southwark
