Start & Finish Golders Green tube station

You may know Dr Peter Coles through his Mulberry walks which are always sold out events. Peter is a wealth of knowledge and passion for his subject and on this walk you will experience Autumn Colours beneath your feet, as each step you rustle leaves, and as you look up into the canopies of veteran trees as they shed their copper-coloured foliage. Discover ancient boundary lines and tracks, hidden ponds and a secret garden, all in the company of keen-eyed Dr Peter Coles, nature photographer and writer who has walked this park and heath for more than 40 years. 

Join Andrew Stuck, founder of the Museum of Walking and Peter for what promises to be a wonderful autumnal & colourful evocative and revealing morning around Hampstead Heath.

Exploring the Urban Forest with Paul Wood 

Great Western Trees

10.30am-12.30pm Sunday 17 November

Start Ravenscourt Park

Join Paul Wood on a tour of some of west London’s finest and most mysterious trees on a walk from Ravenscourt Park to Stamford Brook tube stations – the long way round. As we cut through Ravenscourt Park we’ll see two of London’s official Great Trees, a distinction accorded to just 61 remarkable trees in the city. The Ravenscourt Park duo are very different, and one – a delightfully rotund London Pane – has several myths attached to account for it’s unusual appearance. Beyond the park, the streets of Hammersmith and Fulham have lots more interest in store including one species so unusual it has no commonly accepted English name. As this walk takes place in November, we’ll see the last gasps of autumn and it will be an opportunity to brush up on winter tree IDs.
