Bath LGBT History Walk @ War Memorial, Royal Victoria Park
Feb 25 @ 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm
Bath LGBT History Walk @ War Memorial, Royal Victoria Park | England | United Kingdom

Meet by the War Memorial at the entrance to Royal Victoria Park at 2.00 pm. The walk is a little over a mile in length through the centre of the city and lasts about one and a half hours. We will be looking at buildings and places associated with LGBT people over the last century. These represent a rich variety of different experiences and show some of the many changes which have occurred during that period. The walk ends back at the starting point, where participants can get tea or coffee in the nearby Pavilion Café. Please wear warm clothing, as the group stops en route for explanations about the places we pass. Walk led by Robert Howes of Gay West. Contact: 07758 810134.
