==================================================================

Vincent Van Gogh lived at 87 Hackford Road in Stockwell for a year between August 1873 and 1874. He fell in love with British culture and was inspired by the art he saw in the UK. He was working at Goupil and Company, an Art Dealers in Covent Garden, and he walked to and from work.

This virtual tour follows Vincent's footsteps in a 3½ mile "walk" between his workplace and his lodgings, exploring what London would have been like in the early 1870s. We go by the river Thames along what was then the newly built Victoria Embankment and cross Westminster Bridge which Van Gogh sketched on some Goupil and Co headed note paper. And we hear how different life was then before indoor plumbing, domestic cookers, electricity and the motor vehicle.

Cost: £5
