Tutor: Peter Lawrence

This course offers an opportunity for W.I. members to explore the grand location that has hosted the Annual Meeting for decades. However the Royal Albert Hall is but one location in this part of London that we can enjoy today as the result of Prince Albert’s organising genius. The outstanding success of the 1851 Exhibition, located across the road in Hyde Park, led to the purchase of land in the market gardening area of Brompton and the beginning of a plan to create a centre for arts and culture that gave us the museums, colleges and architectural grandeur that became known as “Albertopolis”. The course will include a trip to Kensington to explore and admire this unique part of London’s history.
