Ealing Cycling Campaign Leisurely Ride: Ealing Garden Suburbs

April 7 @ 9:45 am

Share this page

Meet at Ealing Town Hall at 9.45am for a 10am departure.

Join us for our shorter local ride exploring the social and architectural history of Bedford Park and Brentham Garden Suburb. Sir John Betjeman described Bedford Park as “the most significant suburb built in the last century, probably in the western world”. It is important in the history of the garden suburb movement, and we will learn about the history of its different stages of development. We will also see the Voysey House designed and built by the Arts & Crafts architect Charles Voysey on South Parade.

We then move on to visit Brentham Garden Suburb, notable as the first garden suburb founded on co-partnership principles, influenced by William Morris and the Arts & Crafts Movement.
This will be a gentle ride, with plenty of stops to look at the buildings and hear about their history. It will be a “long half day” with a mid-morning refreshment break and returning to Ealing by around 2pm.

Any queries, please contact rides@ealingcycling.org.uk
