Bethlem History Walk

Saturday 20 January 2024

Bethlem Gallery and Museum of the Mind

What was here before?

Join Bethlem Gallery and the Museum of the Mind for an invigorating walk around the stunning grounds of the Bethlem Royal Hospital. On this walk we will be asking ‘What was here before?’ and finding out about the history of the hospital from when it moved in 1930. Is Monks Orchard anything to do with monks? What was this iron fence for?

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 referred by social prescribing link workers, 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 at Bethlem Gallery. We will set off promptly so please arrive a little early to be sure not to miss us.

The GUTS cafe will be selling hot drinks and snacks in the foyer of the museum after the walk, and you are also welcome to visit the gallery and museum. Entry is free and it is the final day of the Bethlem Art Fair 2023.
