London’s parks are such a familiar part of everyday life, you might be forgiven for thinking they have always been there – and that they always will.
In fact, the roots of even the most humble of our neighbourhood parks lie in age-old battles over land and liberty.
From their medieval life as private royal hunting grounds and private estates to their modern incarnation as public spaces teeming with activity, acclaimed author Travis Elborough traces the extraordinary history of the capital’s parks in an entertaining, illustrated talk based on his book, A Walk in the Park.
Part of our London Talks Series.
