A day devoted to the "Michelangelo of Wood" the incredible Grinling Gibbons 1648-1721. We'll see works from all periods of his career, some of his haunts, dispell a couple of myths and look at some rare memorabilia. We meet just after breakfast at the V&A and finish close to the Tower of London in a pub. Along the route we'll be taking breaks for coffee and lunch. We will be using the tube on a couple of occasions so you'll need a travel card, Oyster or contactless ticket. We won't be visiting anywhere that charges an additional entrance fee. After the walk I'll be sharing a guide to other places where you can see his work. The group size will be kept deliberately small, an absolute maximum of 10 people, to encourage a convivial and chatty atmosphere.
