Celebrating the work of George and Peto:
A talk and walk with Hilary Grainger
Tuesday 5 June 2018, 6:30 to 8:30pm
Meeting place: inside 39 Harrington Gardens, SW7 4JU
This event was quickly sold out long when we held it in May 2017 and many expressed a wish to see it repeated. So here it is again!
The dramatic Victorian architecture of Sir Ernest George and his design partner Harold Peto graces Collingham Gardens and a stretch of Harrington Gardens. These Grade II* listed buildings housed the famous and fashionable, including W.S. Gilbert of Gilbert & Sullivan fame.
Professor Hilary Grainger, chairman of the Victorian Society and an expert on the two men’s work, will give a talk and a walking tour, including a viewing of the interiors of some of the best houses.
Tickets include a glass of wine at the end of the tour.
The size of the group is limited to 25 people, so sign up early.
Kensington Society members £20, non-members £25
