A Little History of the Sikhs

Join Rav Singh to discover the Sikh history of Kensington and Chelsea through statues, locations and artefacts.
Andrew Roberts

Description

Starting from the National Army Museum, the story will commence with details of the Anglo-Sikh Wars and the annexation of the Sikh Kingdom.

Onto St Luke's Church in Chelsea, the tour will explore how the Sikhs were classified as a ‘martial race’ and recruited to become a significant part of the British Indian Army. Ending in Hyde Park and Exhibition Road, we will learn about treasures of the Punjab now displayed in London’s world-famous museums.

This tour will end at the Natural History Museum in South Kensington and will last approximately two hours.

Please bring a face covering with you as this tour will be entering buildings.

The guide will be using the Vox Connect app to facilitate social distancing on this walking tour. We recommend that you download this in advance and bring headphones.
