Quirky Kingston - a free tour of Kingston Museum hosted by Julian McCarthy
There are 2 tour times on Saturday 21 May from 2.15 - 3:15pm and then 3:30-4:30 at Kingston Museum, Wheatfield Way
A family friendly circular, drop in drop out tour of some of the more quirky and unusual objects in our collection, hosted by Julian McCarthy, a qualified Kingston tour guide. Suitable for all ages.
Julian McCarthy is a qualified Kingston upon Thames Tour Guide, founder member of The Maldens and Coombe Heritage Society and local history author. He has a passion for searching for obscure, but interesting, historical nuggets relating to Kingston and New Malden.
"Looking back at our historical past", he says, "is the closest we can ever get to time travel and, with a little imagination, we can place ourselves alongside people living long ago!"
Having cast his eyes over the museum, he has his personal favourite treasures but, equally, knows that he has missed fabulous historical gems in the collection but is happy to leave these for you to find - you simply have to look, they ARE there!
