Tube Suburb Walks in Golders Green

People living in Golders Green have created a series of walks about what their suburb means to them to tie in with the London Transport Museum's latest temporary exhibition Suburbia that opens on Oct 15th.

A place of delightful prospects by RachelH

Golders Green was apparently the first Tube-created suburb in 1907 when the green fields of Golders Green were transformed by the coming of the Tube.

The locals have created three walks along the themes of tasty places to eat, places of reflection and green spaces that highlight the diversity of their community today and what makes it unique.

Free guided tours are happening from 8th September, (bookable online or over the phone on 0207 565 7298), which start at Golders Green London Underground Station. There are pdf self-guided walks that can be downloaded from the London Transport Museum's website.

There will also be an interactive map that people can add their photos to, coming soon.
