Twentieth Century Society architectural walk with Peter Ruback

Wednesday 13 September 2017, 6:00 to 8:00pm

Meeting place: in front of the Design Museum shop, Kensington High Street

The chairman of the Twentieth Century Society, Peter Ruback, takes us on a walk through central Kensington to see some well-designed but under-appreciated modern buildings. Starting at the Design Museum, we visit Ilchester Place and Melbury Road, continue through Holland Park to Campden Hill and finish in a pub near Hornton Street.

The walk, which includes some gentle slopes, takes two hours, so please wear comfortable shoes.

Beer, wine or soft drink at the pub is included in the price. Please state preferred choice of drink for each attendee when registering below.

The group is limited to 30 people, so sign up early.

Kensington Society members £20, non-members £25
