About this Event

With stop for coffee and cake at 'Violet' where there is also a baby change. Please bring a packed lunch if you want anything more substantial at lunchtime.

'Bring Your Baby' Guided London Walks are sensitively devised to suit parents and carers of even the tiniest babies to enjoy London’s history. We can stop whenever you like to feed and change - without the stress of feeling you are holding up the group. Because every participant brings their baby, patience and baby’s needs are at the forefront of each walk.

You are welcome to bring friends and family who do not also have a baby.


WOMEN FROM HACKNEY'S HISTORY: DALSTON

This walk is written and guided by City of London trained guide Sue Doe, co-writer of the best-selling 'Women from Hackney's History' (2021), which has just sold out its print run and is due to be reprinted later this year.

The Dalston women prove that women really can do anything – politicians, entertainers, club owners, radical feminists, campaigners, racing drivers, war heroes, anti fascist fighters – all here, and more.

On this walk you will hear the stories of these women and groups:

- Doreen Raddon, co-founder of The Four Aces club.

- Anna Sewell, Black Beauty writer.

- Marie Lloyd, famous music hall star.

- Clara Ludski, founder of The Rio Cinema.

- The 43 Group, who fought Oswald Mosley and his fascists on Ridley Road.

- Cherie Blair, barrister (and wife of Tony...).

- Mo Mowlam, politician.

- Claire Ptak, American baker and founder of Violet where we shall stop!.

- Lansdowne Road squats.

- Sarah Flower-Adams, hymn-writer who wrote Nearer, My God, To Thee, said to have been played by the musicians as The Titanic sank.

- Isabella Banks, author of The Manchester Man.

- The Lenthall Road Print Shop.

- The German Hospital, once visited by Florence Nightingale.

- Dorothy Levitt, pioneering 1920s racing car driver.

- Hetty Bower, political activist and suffragette.

- Florence Benoy, The Women’s Auxiliary Army Corps (WAAC) 'worker', who lost her life during WW1.


If on the day of the walk we are forecast to have very bad weather, I may have to postpone the walk. If it's a bit of light rain we will cope!

Every walk follows the usual health and safety guidelines, such as crossing at traffic lights where possible and having hazards pointed out to you at the start and along the route.

There may be times we have to stand in direct sunlight (although I will always choose shade where possible). Please bring all the necessary sun protection for yourself and your child.

It is recommended you bring appropriate drinks and snacks for the duration of the walk.

I will contact you with booking confirmation after you book. I will supply my mobile number in case of emergencies or in case you are running late. I will also ask you to provide me with a mobile number so you can be contacted before, during or after the walk, but this is *not for marketing purposes*.

If you like the look of any of my walks, but would prefer to book me privately, please make enquiries at THVjeSB8IGJyaW5neW91cmJhYnkgISBvcmc=. This may particularly be the case if you have people interested who do not have babies.

Important notes about booking:

Please feel free to invite baby-free friends.

Customer refunds must be requested at least 24 hours before an event starts. We cannot guarantee you can move your ticket to the next month but you are welcome to enquire at THVjeSB8IGJyaW5neW91cmJhYnkgISBvcmc=

If for any reason Bring Your Baby Ltd are forced to cancel or postpone an event (for example in the case of illness or extreme weather conditions), you are within your rights to request a refund, though we will always suggest an alternative date for you to attend.

Host Details
About The Host:
Bring Your Baby Guided London Walks have been sensitively devised to suit parents and carers of even the tiniest babies to enjoy guided local history walks with their pram or sling.Each walk has been planned so that you can stop whenever you like to feed and change - without the stress of feeling you are holding up the group. Because every participant brings their baby, patience and baby’s needs are at the forefront of each walk.As a local historian and also a recent new mother, I noticed there was a real absence of activities for parents and carers to enjoy something stimulating for both brain and body while caring for baby.The focus of these walks is enjoyment: gaining new local history knowledge and exploring the outdoors, while at the same time feeling unpressured when baby’s needs arise.Everyone who comes along is welcome to stop as they need to comfort, feed and change. Either we can stop as a group, or you can use the map provided to rejoin us further along the route. There are many stops, and always lots to see and hear about, so it is always easy to catch up.I will always add a pit-stop halfway through (such as a cafe or pub large enough to accommodate us) so that we can take a breather and meet baby’s needs at this time if it hasn’t been required earlier.Adults £20; children go free.Lucy Madison is a life-long London history nerd and mum to 4 year-old Evan. Trained in guiding walks and with a background in Primary School teaching, she is used to organising large groups of people! Lucy also founded 'Bring Your Baby Pub Quizzes' which take place all over London and increasing areas of the UK, and which can also be found at BringYourBaby.org. Apart from looking for the latest new adventure with her family, developing new walks and running Bring Your Baby Ltd, Lucy is a committee member ofHackney Historyand co-wrote the sell-out book 'Women from Hackney's History' which is soon to be reprinted.FAQWhat kind of places will there be to feed or change my baby?We always have a halfway pit-stop for lunch and/or refreshment and baby change, and I will never rush you to finish eating, feeding or changing. We just take as long as everyone needs. If we visit a park or green space, there are almost always plentiful benches or grassy spots depending on your level of comfort feeding or changing there. You can always request to stop somewhere convenient outside of these times. Patience is at the forefront of these walks.Since having my baby I need to rest quite often. Will there be places to sit down?I always try to arrange stops at points of interest along the route at places where there is a bench, wall or other suitable area to perch! Though this is not possible at every stop, it is something I consider when planning every walk - I had a Caesarian myself, and remember the need for respite!I’m embarrassed to ask the group to slow down or stop when I need to use the loo / feed or change baby / have a rest.You never need to feel embarrassed, guilty or stressed in asking the group to stop or slow down for any reason. That's what Bring Your Baby is all about. Simply make me aware and I’ll modify what we’re doing at the time to meet your needs.How long are the walks?Approximate distances and durations are indicated on each listing and I shall remind you when the walk starts. No walk is ever over 2 miles. Owing to the nature of these walks it may be we need more time to complete the walk if stoppages are needed.I’m bringing my baby, but can I also bring my other children?My walks are often a great learning opportunity for children, particularly if we visit green spaces with plenty of natural sensory elements. However it is the parent or carer's responsibility to ensure their children are safe, particularly near roads.Will I be able buy food along the way?Packed food, drink and snacks are always recommended as we are being active and you may get hungry! However, snacks, tea and coffee etc. can be purchased at the place we stop at halfway for refreshment.Can I come on your walk if I don’t bring children?Unfortunately not. These walks have been designed to provide something unique for parents and carers of small children. Therefore I have to prioritise and cater for this group only. This does not mean there is a limit to the number of adults you can bring - mum, dad, childminder and granny all welcome as long as there is a child! All adults need to be paying ticket holders.Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?No, I'll have you already on my list.What is the refund policy?Refunds need to be requested with 24-hours notice. In some circumstances I will allow you to attend a future walk instead with your ticket if you cancel at late notice.Will the walk be cancelled if it rains?Walks go ahead in light rain, but heavy rain or high winds are not safe for taking babies out on guided walks, so in this circumstance the walk would be postponed. You can request a full refund if you can't make an alternative date.I can’t make your date. Will you be repeating the walk?Walks generally get repeated every month or so. The more popular ones such asSuffragettes' East LondonandNursery Rhymes Londonget repeated more frequently.Where can I contact you with any questions?Drop me a line atLucy@bringyourbaby.org
