Vauxhall - Soho On Thames

Gay clubs, spies and an Oval that's well rounded

This walk starts in Kennington and takes us through an area that is changing by the minute. - so catch it whilst you can as it’s past is vanishing quickly.

On this walk, we'll visit a world famous sports arena which is mainly known for cricket but has other stories to tell.  We'll also pass a housing estate with a difference and a building that will take us to the stars!

We'll by pass through one of London’s busiest and noisiest traffic junctions but one that’s just seconds away from complete tranquility.

Vauxhall is the new capital of the London’s gay scene and we'll stop outside its most famous and notorious gay pub.

The tour ends at the site of London’s first pleasure gardens which date back to 1660. Within the site is one of London’s hidden gems - a Victorian teahouse with a shady past! It's a great place to end the tour and there'll you'll be able to get a refreshing cup of tea (they don't sell coffee!) and a delicious slice of cake.

Our walk which lasts around two hours costs £10 (tea & cake not included!),payable on the day, will be illustrated by historical photographs. It starts in Kennington and ends near Vauxhall station; the full details will be sent to you a few days before the day of the walk.

Meeting place: Outside Oval station; turn left when you exit the station
