Wonderful Weeds Guided Walk

Key information

5, 13 & 18 June and 9 & 23 July 6 - 8pm


The Regent's Park & Primrose Hill



Explore the wonders of the humble weed

Join us on a leisurely walk through the park discovering the beautiful botany and fascinating heritage of some of our most overlooked wild species, the ‘weeds’.

Our relationship to these wild plants has changed throughout history. What place do weeds have in our urban parks, and what lessons can we learn from them?

This walk will last up to 2 hours and is aimed at adults with an interest in learning more about botany and ethnobotany. 

On this walk we will explore botanical identification skills, benefits for biodiversity and climate resilience, historical and cultural significance.
