Day Visits

Andrew Davies’ Walking Tour: St Pancras and King’s Cross, A New Discovery Thursday 29th September 2022. (Booking online only, judith@wargrave.me, on Monday 13th June from 9.30am. Instructions to follow in the June newsletter)
Andrew Davies’ Walking Tour: St Pancras and King’s Cross, A New Discovery
 
Please note this outing may only be booked online on Monday 13th June from 9.30am, judith@wargrave.me.
 
Our perennial favourite guide, Andrew Davies, was badgered to come out of retirement by so many Arts Society branches that he has finally agreed to do so. What wonderful news!
 
Originally booked for October 2021, but cancelled due to the advent of Covid, our visit to London with him has now been resurrected. Andrew has promised us an enthralling walking tour of the King's Cross area and a very different experience from the Henley Arts Society outing of 2012 to the same part of the world.  We shall examine the two railway stations of contrasting style:
 
                                                    St Pancras                                                                  King's Cross
One is exuberant and Gothic, whilst the other is austere and classical.

2.  Except when advised otherwise, bookings open at 09:30 in the morning and 13:30 in the afternoon.  Places are filled quickly for popular outings so it is advisable to arrive early.
3.  Bookings are only taken for the visit advertised that day and only accepted on receipt of payment by card or cheque (payable to TASH).
4.  Members may book for themselves and one other member, except for the Andrew Davies Tours when it is single bookings only.  You will be required to fill in a Contact Form and provide your name, email address, mobile and home telephone numbers and an emergency contact name and number.  If you are booking for someone else, it would be helpful if you had these details, otherwise they will need to be posted.
