A fascinating walking exploration of an area immediately bordering the old City of London to the north

About this event

Now part of the borough of Islington, this area and adjacent Clerkenwell formed the old Borough of Finsbury until 1965. Finsbury was originally the religious parish of St. Luke’s just outside the City walls. This walk explores several centuries of history including archery fields, Elizabethan theatre, a noted artillery regiment, a plague pit, the birthplace of Methodism and a radical early metropolitan council.

Starts at Barbican station, ends near Old Street station.
