Overview

'Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park, a Local Nature Reserve is a unique site in London's Zone 2 and well worth a visit. As a closed cemetery and one of the Victorian "Magnificent Seven" it contains a wealth of beautiful, ornately carved monuments in sandstone, granite, and even Italian white marble with fascinating stories of the lives of those interred.'

Overview

Social Walking Group 'Relaxed gentle walking with a friendly social group ... The walks vary in length from two to five miles and are taken at an easy pace with plenty of opportunities to talk to other walkers. There is no obligation to complete the entire walk, nor do we expect members to attend every walk. Our largest attendance has been twelve, but we have walked with as few as three and an average turn-out would be six.'

Overview

'Walk Tower Hamlets is our local health walk scheme. There are currently seven walking groups across the Borough - all are based at a local health centre or community centre. These weekly walks typically last about 60-90 minutes, ending back at the centre, with some of the groups also exploring further afield with monthly walks using the DLR to get to alternative destinations.'

Overview

'Will take you on a historical tour around Victoria Park, where you can listen to memories from local park users and learn about the park's past and how it's changed over nearly 170 years – from the beautiful Burdett-Coutts drinking fountain donated by one of the richest women in the country, to the ever watchful Dogs of Alcibiades statues, mysteriously said to rescue canal users in trouble!'
