This guided walking tour with Paul Talling, author of Derelict London and London's Lost Rivers follows the route of the River Westbourne from Bayswater down to Chelsea Bridge.

Explore the alleyways and mews that once lined the river and then head off through Hyde Park where the river formed a series of natural ponds later dammed to form the Serpentine. Then through Knightsbridge (named after a ruckus between knights on a bridge over the river) past Sloane Square, where the encased river can be seen crossing the tube station, and then down to the Thames where the sewer outfall empties out into the Thames beside Chelsea Bridge.
