Echoes of the Crimean War in London - A Guided Walk on 29 July
The Crimean War, which was also referred to as the War with Russia by contemporary commentators, took place during 1853-1856 between Russia and the Ottoman Empire and the British, French, and Piedmont-Sardinians. In this walk you will be introduced to a variety of connections with the conflict, some obvious and some not so, which can be found within a small area of Westminster extending from the boundary with the City of London via the Embankment to Waterloo Place. Some of the principal personalities involved in the war can be found in the National Portrait Gallery which can be visited independently either before or after the walk; a list indicating the location of the portraits will be provided.
A walk on Friday, 29 July (2-4pm) with Mike Hinton, cost £10.00/£8.00 SoG members. Places must be pre-booked, through our website or by telephone: 020 7553 3290. Do you have a question? email the events department.
