FEBRUARY - APRIL 2024
Join us on the first Wednesday of each month where we will introduce you to hidden corners of London and tell you some of London's best stories.
There is no need to book for these tours, just turn up and pay the guide £15 (new price) on the day. It would, however, help the guide if you could email in advance if you expect to attend - also let us know if you change your mind!

Canonbury is now a highly sought-after area but back in the 1940s George Orwell described his residence in Canonbury Square as a decaying slum and it was here that the term Gentrification was coined in the 1950s. Its history goes way back to the Tudor and Stuart periods when Canonbury Tower and the New River were constructed and still survive today. The Walk ends near Highbury and Islington station.
