      Strandlines: London History Day Greening Aldwych: A walking tour of lost and future green spaces of Aldwych.31 May 201912:30pm - 2:00pmFree Join the Strandlines editorial team, researchers and archivists at King’s College London, on a tour of past, present, and future green space around Aldwych. We are marking London History Day with our minds on the environment in this busy part of the city. The 40-minute walking tour (12:30-1:10) will explore locations around Aldwych that have moved through different shades of green over the last three hundred years. We'll explore a miscellany of stories about the lost gardens of Somerset House, the secret life of Aldwych bees, why Aldwych looks like Paris, and what the future holds for this congested part of London. Participants will then have 45 minutes to explore the past, present, and future of Aldwych in the King’s Archives. We’ll invite participants to imagine – in words or pictures – what the future pedestrianised Aldwych might look like, in 5 years, or 100 years! Accessibility: the walking tour will last 40 minutes. Bathrooms will be available before and during the ‘archive’ session. All areas visited are accessible to wheelchair users. Please be in touch if you have any queries at all by emailing contact@strandlines.london or via Twitter @Strandlines.
