    We are delighted that the National Archives have offered our members another two 'Behind the Scenes' tours that were very popular back in the summer. The cost is £8.50 for a members only ticket.

    This is a ticketed event. The National Archives has confirmed that tours are fully accessible, but do require walking fitness, as it is quite a large building even on the flat! Tours last approximately 60-75 minutes.

    The tour will visit the repositories and reading rooms and view some original and historic public records. If any tour attendees have a particular area of interest amongst the records held at the archives please let us know at the time of booking. The National Archives has offered to check if there are any original records that can be produced for viewing during the tour.

    To book on line for March 11th please click the link here (with fees)

    Doors open at 6.30pm and the talk starts at 7pm.

    John Inglis and Jill Sanders are behind a project to present a travelling photographic panorama of 52 miles of Thames riverbanks as a direct comparison with the historic Leigh Panorama, the 60ft extravaganza of 1829, which John has painstakingly digitally restored.

    As well as being an impressive technical accomplishment )John Inglis is a former special effects designer), the project gives a dramatic onscreen demonstration of how much and in few places, how surprisingly little, London has changed over the pas two centuries.

    Tickets will be available on the door on the night.

    Kew Society members £3

    Non members £5
