Event description

Description

The Pimlico we see today is largely down to the vision of one man, Thomas Cubitt, who planned the area for the Duke of Westminster in the early 19th century. In this walk we see some of Cubitt's streets and squares but also some of the interesting 20th century additions, such as the colossal 1930s Dolphin Square apartment development and the innovative 1960s Lillington Gardens council estate. Plus we hear about some of the well known residents, from victorian illustrator Aubrey Beardsley to fashion designer Laura Ashley as well as politicians from Oswald Mosley to Winston Churchill.

Join me for a fascinating stroll through one of central London's lesser known districts.
