Event description

Description

We're running a series of 5 park study days this spring to get you in the mood for next academic year's courses on the History of Public Parks. You may think you know these places quite well but we guarantee you'll learn a lot more! The final one will be to some gardens in the City of London and will be led by Stephen Smith.

The day will start with a classroom based session on the city's gardens, and their history and planting at the IHR from 10.30-1.00. Coffee/tea and light refreshments are available in the IHR Common Room but only after 10.30. The small coffee stall in South Block of Senate House [at the opposite end of the entrance hall to the IHR] is open earlier and you're welcome to bring a drink into the class with you.

After lunch [not provided, so bring a picnic or get something en route or when you arrive at the park itself] there will be a guided tour of some of the City's gardens..

Transport is not provided but the sites are all easily accessible by public transport and full directions will be given. The afternoon visit will go ahead whatever the weather - so come prepared!

As usual the group will be small [max size 16] with a lively illustrated lecture, opportunities for discussion and further personal reading & research suggestions if you wish.

And don't forget there is a discount if you book all 5 days! To do that go to https://parkstudydays.eventbrite.co.uk

We often have a waiting list for places on our courses so if you book a place, but are unable to use it for any reason, then either find a friend who'd like to come [and tell us!] or email us and we will try and resell it if we can. In that's possible then we will be happy to refund your payment less Eventbrite's fees, otherwise we regret we cannot offer a refund. In the unlikely event of a cancellation of a lecture for any reason we will endeavour to arrange a replacement session as soon as possible.
