Beginning in Sloane Square and ending in Tate Britain’s landmark exhibition of Burne-Jones’ work, this walking tour will layer the tales of Burne-Jones and the Pre-Raphaelites against the backdrop of the local history, urban myths and folklore of Belgravia, Victoria and Pimlico. Walking between sites, we will create space to discuss the relationship between myths, past and present, and their enduring relevance to contemporary life.
The walk will be led by artist Rebecca Leach McDonald and will include a short tour, followed by a private view of the exhibition.
