MICHAEL COLLINS AND IRELAND'S GREAT WAR

In 1906 Cork farm boy Mick Collins arrived in Hammersmith. Walk the commute that he and his older sister Hannie took each day to the PO Savings Bank in Blythe Road. London honed the formidable array of talents that would make Collins into one of the most effective enemies of the British Empire. This is a walk that touches on the agony that the Great War came to mean for Ireland. Meet 14.00 outside Olympia tube station in Olympia Way. Saturday 23rd August. £10. £8.Book on http://www.worldwaronewalks.com/?p=508

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
