New season of Bethlem Walks

Join us for a walk around the stunning grounds of the Bethlem Royal Hospital with artist Charlie Fox in collaboration with our partners, the Bethlem Museum of the Mind. Find out about the history of the Bethlem Royal Hospital, the original ‘Bedlam’ after it moved to Beckenham in 1930. We ask what used to be here before the hospital? Is Monks Orchard anything to do with monks? What flora and fauna do we have now and why?

Strong footwear is advised at it may be muddy in places and be prepared for rain or shine! Concession tickets are available for SLaM Service users, people over 60, students, people on jobseekers allowance and people registered as disabled. Assistants for people registered as disabled go free. For a paid event, we regret that tickets cannot be refunded unless the event is cancelled.

Walks begin at 11am and last approximately 1 hour and start in the Bethlem Gallery. We will set off promptly so please arrive a little early to be sure not to miss us. Please book here
