A WALK - HOLLAND PARK AND THE ARTISTS’ HOUSES OF KENSINGTON

Part of this walk will be in Holland Park where we will see the ruins of Holland House, the great Jacobean mansion which stood there until destroyed by bombing in 1941 and we will visit the Kyoto garden, a small but beautiful example of a Japanese garden.

We will also see the houses that were built in the 19th century for some of the most successful painters of the day, including Leighton House, the home of Frederick, Lord Leighton and 18, Stafford Terrace, home of the Sambourne family which has a beautifully preserved Victorian interior.  

Meet at 10.30am at entrance to Holland Park tube station (Central Line). Take the District Line to Notting Hill Gate and change on to the Central Line.
