Tilted phone boxes on Old London Road

‘Out of Order’ on Old London Road was created in 1988 by the Scottish sculptor and installation artist David Mach

 

Kingston has become a prime retail location for south-west London, yet retains one of the best medieval street plans outside the City of London. Do you know that Kingston was once an island in the River Thames? The king’s manor or ‘tun’ is the origin of the name Kingston. Remnants of one of London’s earliest bridges can be viewed at John Lewis riverside.

If this sounds interesting please join experienced guide and chairman of Kingston Tour Guides Mike Seigel for an informative and fun walk through Kingston’s historic town centre on Tuesday 1 May.

The 90-minute tour will depart from All Saints Church gates in the Market Place (next to Kuoni travel) at 10.30am and finish on Old London Road by the red telephone boxes.

This event is free of charge and is offered exclusively to LEAH tutors. There are 20 places available so please book yours by emailing events@leah.org.uk.
