Event description

Description

Join SAVE Britain's Heritage and author Tom Bolton on a walking tour of Camden Town. To mark the publication of his new book, Camden Town: Dreams of Another London, Tom is leading a walking tour of Camden’s culture, history and architecture for SAVE.

Camden Town sprang up in fields at the edge of London with the railways, and was soon a teeming mixture of dirt and poverty, factories and warehouses, outcasts and exiles, artists and writers, all sharing a few streets. Behind its tourist front, Camden today reflects every one of its lost identities. The walk will examine significant buildings, surviving and vanished, to reconstruct Camden’s past and consider its present.



Date: Saturday 5th August 2017

Start: Camden Town Tube Station, outside Kentish Town Road exit, 11am

End: Mornington Crescent Tube Station, c.1pm

Tickets: £8 Friends and Saviours, £12 members of the public (plus Eventbrite booking fee)
