Victoria Park Memoryscape Trail

The Victoria Park Memoryscape trail will take you on a historical tour around Victoria Park, where you can listen to memories from local park users and learn about the park's past and how it's changed over nearly 170 years – from the beautiful Burdett-Coutts drinking fountain donated by one of the richest women in the country, to the ever watchful Dogs of Alcibiades statues, mysteriously said to rescue canal users in trouble!

Getting started

You can listen to the Victoria Park Memoryscape Trail in the following ways:

  • download the whole trail or individual tracks to your personal music device from the links below. In addition to this you can also print off the Memoryscape Trail map (listed below). This map provides a suggested route for the trail,beginning at Crown Gate West and finishing at the Stone Alcoves from the original London Bridge. This route takes around 1½ hours to complete, but if you’d prefer you can listen to individual tracks or make your own route.
  • collect a pre-recorded headset and trail map from The Hub reception. A refundable deposit of £10 is required for this service. 

Please be aware of cyclists and pedestrians as you walk around, especially when on the canal towpath and crossing Victoria Park MemoryscapeGrove Road.
