Mark Wood's Map: Dalhousie Square Walk

In this heritage walk we will retrace the steps of British administrator, Lieutenant Colonel Mark Wood to explore streets and identify buildings that were depicted in Wood's detailed map of 1784 of the European Settlement in Calcutta.

Friday, 12th Jan (7:00 - 9.30 am)

 

South Park Street Cemetery Walk 

In this walk we take you inside the South Park Street Cemetery, the largest non-church cemetery outside the Anglo-American world in the 19th century, where you learn about life and death in colonial Calcutta and and identify different types of grave architecture.

Saturday, 13th Jan (8.30 - 10.30 am).

 

The Pilgrim's Trail: Chitpore Road Walk 

Chitpore Road is older than Calcutta. Under the East India Company's rule, this part of Kolkata was known as “native/black” town where both poor and affluent Indians lived. We will walk this historic route to explore its colourful past. 

Sunday, 14th Jan (7.00 - 9.30 am).
