Event description

Description

Historically the districts of Holborn and Finsbury were two of the toughest in London. Located in the heart of the city, in the 19th and early 20th centuries these were densely populated and overcrowded mixed neighbourhoods of dilapidated townhouses and terraces, slums and industry. Yet amidst the challenging living conditions, these districts incubated radical ideas that would provide a template for the reconstruction of the rest of the city. In this walk, The London Ambler explores the architectural monuments, streets and transformed landscapes of the city’s drive towards urban improvement and progress.
