Imprints: London Migration Walk

On Sunday 16th October 2016, over 120 intrepid walkers joined the Migration Museum Project for our inaugural Migration Walk –  an epic trek across London, from Cutty Sark in the east to Hyde Park in the west. The walk took approximately 9 hours, and covered 15 miles, and through the unpredictable weather, our expert guides illuminated hidden stories of migrants and refugees, following in the footsteps of those who have shaped the city throughout history.

Thank you to all who took part, and contributed towards our fundraising goal of £20,000, which which will support future activities, such as a new exhibition, and our long term goal of creating a new national Migration Museum. We’re incredibly close to reaching our goal, if you’d like to help us achieve this, please donate here.

If you took part in this walk, we would love your feedback on your experience, and how we may be able to improve the walk in the future. Please take a moment to fill out this short anonymous survey.

If you would like to take part in a guided section of the walk with a group of up to 15, we are able to organise a specifically tailored experience which would be perfect as a corporate team building activity, or to entertain clients. In order to facilitate this and to contribute towards our fundraising, we would request a donation of £1,000. Please contact Andrew@migrationmuseum.org for more information.
