GUIDED WALK – 12 June 2024

When we were organising our guided walk we had no idea that the subject would be so timely and that we would be exploring Westminster in the middle of a general election campaign! Our wonderful guide, Hazel Phillips, met us in Victoria Tower Gardens and took us on a tour, ‘Westminster – in the eye of political change‘, which chronicled the history of suffrage in the UK. We were reminded of the many struggles over the centuries over the right to vote and that in particular, all women only got the vote less than 100 years ago after many years of campaigning. So we all resolved that it was important to use our vote in the coming election. Despite threats of rain, the evening sun shone and reminded us how beautiful London can be! Thank you Hazel for a lovely evening.
