Southall walk on Sunday, 7 January 2018!

Are you curious to see a different part of London? Join me on another visit to Southall. Even if you've been before, you can be surprised at what you can experience this time!

A tour around old Southall with Joanna Dudzinska

When: Sunday, January 7th 2018            Time: 12:00 PM to 3:00 PM
Meeting point: Southall Railway Station exit, South Road, Southall UB2 TAA

This walk will take us around the historic part of Southall. The tour will last three hours so there will be plenty of time for chatting, getting to know one another and a bit of networking. Do you know there are people who have found a job owing to our tours?
We will meet on Sunday, December 10th, at 12 pm outside Southall Station and walk towards the Elizabethan Manor House and the War Memorial set in the park.
On the way we plan to visit the largest importers of Indian musical instruments in Europe, an Indian ladies clothes shop and a picture gallery/framing shop.
No visit to Southall can be complete without seeing the various religious sites where the Hindus, Sikhs, Christians and Muslims meet to pray only a short walk from one another.
A tour of the largest Gurdwara outside India is an experience not to be missed. We have to enter it without shoes on and with our heads covered. Mind you, at every Gurdwara, a blessed vegetarian meal is served so we won’t be hungry.
We will also see an old cemetery where the famous Martinware pottery makers, the Martin Brothers, are buried. We will pass by many shops and stalls which will make us feel as if we were on the Indian subcontinent, not in Greater London.
Southall’s industrial past will get a mention too before we go back to Southall Station.
The cost is £10 per person and children can join free, just look after them. ;-)
