Eclectic London, from 16th century politics, through Marx to Multiculturalism

Another weekend in London is being organised for September 2017. This year we will travel to London by Eurostar on Friday 8th returning late afternoon on Monday 11th. As usual we will stay in the halls of residence of Imperial College in South Kensington, which offer simple, en-suite rooms. Local transport will be by coach on the Friday from St Pancras, and on Sunday. For the rest of the time we will use the underground.

The programme will include 18th and 19th century steam power and the house and park developed from the revenues of extensive coal mines (Syon Park), and Hampton Court, the palace of Cardinal Wolsey, with a return down the river.

In Highgate Cemetery are the tombs of the 19th century notables including Karl Marx from which we will go to one of the most visible signs of London’s multiculturalism, the Shri Swaminarayan Mandir where we will also have a light Indian Lunch.

To end on the Monday will be a guided walk through London’s Legal centre. There should be some free time after this last activity before re-joining the group for the return

The cost will include all transport and entries to places to be visited as well as breakfast and all evening meals.

Reservation can be guaranteed by payment of a deposit of €100 to the usual NTAB account. Further details and exact price will be communicated in the spring. The trip has proved very popular in the past and as numbers are limited to 30, an early indication of interest will ensure participation.

If you are interested, please let the organiser, Nicholas Fern know by email (nick.fern@ntab.be).
