About this event

IMPORTANT NOTICE: For the safety of all, social distancing rules will apply during our Park Tours:

  • Please try to keep 2 metres from others outside of your group at all times.
  • You must only attend in a group if all members of your group are part of the same household or support bubble.
  • You must wear a mask during the tour unless you are exempt.

The history of Cally Park and the local area extends beyond the iconic clock tower itself. The park and local area hide many clues to the history of the cattle market and the subsequent "Cally" market, as well as stories of recreation and radicalism which you can explore in this park tour.

The tour provides an accessible alternative to our clock tower tours, there are not steps or stairs and people of all levels of fitness can attend.

Our guided tours are led by the highly experienced guides from Islington Guided Walks. Tours are free currently as part of our introductory offer. Space will be limited so please book in advance.
