September 22nd 2021 will see Wesminster Morris commence practices in our new venue. It’s a short stagger from a nice Fullers pub and from Paddington station.
Here’s what Richard (our baggy bagman) has to say about it…
Our new practice venue will be in the church hall at St Johns Church, 18 Hyde Park Crescent, Tyburnia, London W2 2QD, starting on September 22nd, 8.00pm to 10.00pm. The hall is on the left-hand side of the church, at the back.
A Fuller’s pub is nearby, the Victoria on the corner of Sussex Place and Strathearn Place, I suggest that early arrivals could meet there.
There are several options for getting there:
Central line: Lancaster Gate and Marble Arch are the same distance from the church, but Lancaster Gate is closer to the Victoria, about 300m along Stanhope Terrace.
From Victoria it’s probably quickest to get the Circle/District line to Paddington. Take the exit signposted to Praed Street, turn right along Praed Street, and right along London Street. Ignore the Sussex Arms, it doesn’t have any cask beer. Continue along London Street/Sussex Place and see the Victoria straight ahead, or turn left along Gloucester Square to the church. It’s about 400m from Paddington station to the Victoria, 300m from there to the church.
If you’re coming along the Circle/Hammersmith & City line from King’s Cross, either walk from Edgware Road station (700m to the church) or change to the Circle/District line to Paddington. This is because the Hammersmith & City platform at Paddington is much further North and you have to walk miles around the building site to get to Praed Street (guess how I know that!).
From Victoria station to Napier Hall was about 950m, so most of us have less far to walk
