Please note Diane’s Walking Tours sell out fast.

Your ticket includes a guided tour of South Kensington, a visit to the Faringdon Collection and a guide book to the collection.

This walk is for all ages (usually most are 50+) and Diane, your Blue Badge Tour Guide, will introduce Who London ticket holders to each other at the start of the tour. 

This afternoon Diane will lead a walking tour in South Kensington. Discover an area which was developed after the Great Exhibition of 1851. South Kensington has it all from grand museums to hidden mews and you will see the area’s contrasting faces from the large scale to the intimate.

The tour includes a visit to 28 Brompton Square which was bought by the 2nd Lord Faringdon as his London home in 1953, and much of what we see is the result of his passionate collecting. Born in 1902, Gavin Henderson had been in his youth, one of the ‘Bright Young Things’ of that generation. He succeeded his grandfather in 1934 and extended the collection of paintings. The present Lord Faringdon succeeded his uncle in 1977 and has continued the family tradition of collecting.

Meeting point: 1.30pm at South Kensington Underground Station in the shopping arcade at the top of the stairs. (Tour finishes at approximately 4pm.)
