EXCITING NEW VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY: THE HOLLAND PARK CIRCLE- ARTISTS HOUSES TOURS

We are looking for volunteers to take tour groups (max 10 people) on an hour long walking tour around the artists houses located on Holland Park Road and Melbury Road. The tours will uncover the fascinating stories behind the creation of the Holland Park Circle and the external architecture of the studio-houses contemporary to Lord Leighton, eminent Victorian artist and President of the Royal Academy.

 

The tours will take place every Saturday and Thursday at 11am from April 2019 onwards.

Full training will be given and travel expenses can be covered.
