A walking tour series returns, this time venturing to this ever changing area of South London.

The Lost History of Elephant and Castle

Even in early times, the Elephant & Castle was a traffic junction as old roads from the south and from the west joined the road to London Bridge and the City. Between the 1890s and the 1940s, the Elephant & Castle really began to come to life. The area was home to a diverse mix of people, living in everything from modest almshouses to traditional terraces, all of which are now gone. This circular walk will explore this lost history including the Elephant’s top quality entertainment venues (known as the “Piccadilly of the South London”) and hear about 1960 developments, see the major redevelopment which replaced them and learn about projects planned for the future.
