This summer we're diving into our archives to explore how Londoners through the last century have enjoyed themselves in the summer, from people-watching on the side of the road to feasting on ice creams in Regent's Park.

Join our Interpretation Manager Dr. Michelle Johansen for our online course, exploring the history of how the people from our city's past enjoyed the warmer months of the year.
Showcasing hundreds of images from our archives, Michelle will talk about London's green spaces and excursions out of the city. Plus, essential advice on which parks to head for if you want to see wallabies (in the 1930s).
