Event description

Description

I’ve lived in Archway for over thirty years. Let me show you my manor!

Archway has recently had a make-over; its brutalist tower has been re-clad and now houses rented apartments, the two other office blocks have been converted into a hotel and apartments, the controversial gyratory system has been abolished and replaced by a new, as yet to be named, town square. But this is just another chapter in Archway's long history.

On this walk we will:

  • Hear about Archway before and after the make-over
  • See the place where Dick Whittington famously turned again
  • Learn why a bridge was built where there should have been a tunnel
  • Hear why priests disguised themselves to buy a pub
  • Stand on a point that's at the same level as the top of the dome of St Paul's
  • Get fabulous panoramic views from some of the highest points in London
  • And more

And if you fancy a bit of retail therapy, this is possibly the only guided walk that exits through the gift shop!

This circular walk starts at Archway tube station (meet in the ticket hall) and lasts about two hours.

Note: the route includes some fairly steep inclines and a longish flight of steps so is not suitable for buggies or wheelchairs. An accessible version of the walk, avoiding the steps but not the inclines, can be offered by prior arrangement. Please contact me if you would like to discuss this.

Please check travel arrangements on the day at Transport for London's Journey Planner site.
