The Language of Colour Autumn walk

Join Hattie Miles for a guided walk to celebrate Autumn – enjoy the colours of the season as we walk through Bournemouth’s beautiful Central Gardens. Hear a few appropriate readings and discover how the English language has embraced descriptions of our country’s multitude of hues. You will also find out about some of Bournemouth’s collection of unusual trees, learn a little about the area’s history and famous residents.

Friday 20th October and Thursday 9th November, both starting at 11.00am.

We meet outside Platform 19 Café, 19 Queen’s Road, Westbourne, BH2 6BA

Price £6 (£5 over sixties and students). These circular walks last approximately one-and-three-quarter hours.  No need to book, just turn up!

Be prepared: this moderate walk will includes some slopes and paths can be slippery. I recommend wearing comfortable shoes and dressing appropriately for the weather. 

NB: there is a large council pay car park almost opposite Platform 19 and there is some on-street parking nearby. There are bus stops on Queen’s Road and Poole Road, just a short walk from the café.

Before or after the walk you can enjoy refreshments at the café if you would like to. As well as good coffee and teas they do an array of yummy things for breakfast and lunch including a traditional ‘full English’, soup, open sandwiches, jacket potatoes and some tempting cakes and biscuits.

Be prepared: this walk will include some slopes and some narrow paths, which can be a bit muddy. We also walk along some boardwalks which are narrow and can be a bit slippy. I would recommend wearing flat, comfortable footwear and dressing appropriately for the weather.
