Canonbury village is the third in a series of Architect led village London walks which are part of Clerkenwell and Islington's Guides Association regular walks.
Canonbury is an attractive Georgian district in the heart of Islington – With a curious history dating back to a Tudor estate which still has one of London’s oddest surviving ancient monuments - The walk will explore the evolution of this Georgian district and its architecture through the historic people who have lived here – Down and out with George Orwell, slumming it with tofts, and the birth of gentrification with two Bloomsbury Group artists – plus a tower built for the coming flood and the headquarters of Greenpeace.
Meet in or outside the ticket hall of Highbury and Islington Underground Station. The walk leader will be wearing a tour guide badge. The walk will last approximately 1 hour 30 minutes and will finish back at Highbury and Islington Underground Station. The booking name can be transferred to another person. Please arrive on time but if you arrive late then the first stop will be in the garden up Laycock Street, second right off of Upper Street.
In the unlikely event the walk needs to be cancelled tickets will be refunded.
