“Bournemouth: Crime and the Underworld” is a guided walk with Hattie Miles that will tell you about historic crimes relating to the town. Many come to Bournemouth for a taste of the peaceful life but there is a darker side. There are links to infamous murders, enterprising conmen, the Great Train Robbery and even Jack the Ripper. The walk is one of several events linked to the “A Question of Guilt: A Crime Writer’s Collection” exhibition at the Russell-Cotes Art Gallery and Museum.
Walk date: Saturday 24th March starting at 1.30pm. We meet at the Russell-Cotes Art Gallery and Museum, BH1 3AA. A photo of this walk can be seen on the walkingtalks Facebook page.
Tickets cost £16.50 that includes entry into the historic house and, after the walk, tea & cake and an introduction to the “A Question of Guilt” exhibition by a member of the curator team. To book ask at the Russell-Cotes Welcome Desk or telephone 01202 451820. Please book in advance to ensure your place. Booking essential!
Be prepared: this is a moderate walk and includes some slopes and steps with a good rail. I recommend wearing comfortable shoes and dressing appropriately for the weather. The walk will last approximately 90 minutes. Before and after the walk, you are welcome to enjoy the house and gallery.
