We passed many interesting buildings, including Richard Rogers Architects’ extension to the North side of the British Museum, the University of London Senate building, the art deco Daimler hire garage and the amazing facade of the 5star Kimpton Fitzroy Hotel (previously The Russell Hotel). We ended the tour at the calm oasis of St George’s Gardens, previously the burial ground for two nearby churches.
It was an interesting walk and as usual on London tours, it proved there is history to be found around every corner. After our tour some of us warmed ourselves up at the café on the ground floor of the Kimpton Fitzroy Hotel. We look forward to our next outing in April.
