SUFFRAGETTES AND THE WOMEN'S WAR

The Great War transformed the position of women in British society and effectively won the Suffragettes' Votes For Women in ways that no-one could have anticipated in the years leading up to 1914. This walk also recalls the 1914 Buckingham Palace demonstration that marked the last public event that the women staged before the outbreak of war. Meet outside the barriers at Westminster tube 2.00. £10 and £8. www.worldwaronewalks.com

CHRISTIAN THE LION HOUSES WALK

Come and walk Fulham's exclusive Peterborough Estate, south of Parson's Green. Laid out by builder Jimmy Nichols in the 1890s, these handsome red brick villas are adorned with Nichols' trademark terracotta lions, thus earning the district the moniker 'lion houses.' We also have the chance to meet John Kendall who bought a lion cub Christian, from Harrods in the 1960s. He later released Christian into the wild via George Adamson's Born Free Foundation in Kenya. Meet outside Fulham Broadway tube. 2.00pm. FREE BOROUGH WALK
