Cervantes Routes 2023 – Routes of the Spanish exiles in London, itinerary 2

On this walk, we will focus on the North and South of Hyde Park.

We will see where Rafael Martinez Nadal, Gregorio Prieto, Luis Cernuda and Arturo Duperier lived and worked.

In Bayswater, the residential neighbourhood to the north of Hyde Park, the Spanish Home and the Chaplaincy were founded.

Walking through Kensington Gardens we will find the link between the British and Spanish monarchy, giving us the opportunity to take a look at the Spanish monarchic figure prior to the proclamation of the Second Republic.

In South Kensington, we will continue to delve into the memory of our exiles, without forgetting the place where the Spanish Institute in London was founded, considered to be the worthy precursor of the network of Cervantes Institute headquarters, under the direction of a Spanish-English committee.

Link to book tickets

The Instituto Cervantes London continues its programme of guided tours which, under the generic name of “Cervantes Routes”, invites you to explore the geography of the British capital discovering the traces of the presence of the arts, culture, literature and history of Spain and Latin America through its key figures and personalities of all times, prepared and carried out by Milagros Dapena-Collopy (“Qualified Blue Badge London Tourist Guide”)

Throughout 2023 we will develop a catalogue of itineraries, which will take place on Saturday mornings, dealing with the memory of the Spanish and Latin American exile, the historical relations between the British and Spanish monarchies and some of the masterpieces of Spanish art in the National Gallery, among other novelties that we will announce in due course.
