A Walk by Richard Cohen

Meeting at Chalk Farm Station this walk starts by a climb up the slopes of Primrose Hill which gives glorious views over North London . Perhaps like William Blake who saw him on Primrose Hill we will be able to converse with the spiritual sun. We will see the homes of artists, poets, writers and intellectuals from Keats and Engels to Arthur Rackham, Lytton Strachey and Frederick Delius. We will pass the gardens of Primrose Hill and Belsize Village in their full early summer glory. We will then enter Hampstead to see the beautiful architecture of Downshire Hill with its elegant Regency era St John's Church. Our walk ends at another spectacular summit on Parliament Hill. From there an easy walk takes us down to South End Green where cafés, Overground or buses await.
