Map Ramble

Map rambles are self-guided walks that incorporate themes inspired by events and exhibitions, in which participants explore areas and come together to discuss and map their experiences.

11.00am Saturday 28 April 2007 the Map ramble starts – join fellow Map Ramblers at the Geffrye Museum Restaurant and Café – choose a themed Map guide, collect a sketch book, and set out in small groups, on a Ramble around the local streets, to collect your ideas.

Within walking distance are the streets of South Shoreditch with their heritage of furniture making, vibrant Brick Lane leading to Spitalfields, the intriguing neighbourhoods of Hoxton and Haggerston, linked by the Regent’s canal.

At 1.30pm reconvene at the restaurant at the Geffrye Museum, for a chance to share your discoveries with fellow Map Ramblers, including mapping your routes.

Afterwards, contribute your findings to the Map Ramble web log   – these might be sketches, photographs or recordings – please note we don’t provide equipment.
