Event description

Description

This walking tour showcases many different kinds of well-designed housing estates in the London Borough of Islington.

Along the route we’ll talk about innovative philanthropists, rich donors and large bequests, poverty and pride, safety and security, architecture and design.

We'll visit a range of estates – impressive Victorian dwellings funded by independent housing trusts as well as early London County Council buildings – and we'll compare them with LBI's more recent schemes.

The tour ends near Highbury and Islington station and is planned to last 90 minutes but sometimes runs over due to questions and discussions, so please allow 2hrs max.

FAQs

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

There is no minimum age – children aged 5 or younger are welcome at no charge.
However, please note that all other children up to age 15 must be accompanied by an adult – one child per paying adult.

Where exactly does this tour start?

Details of the meeting point will be on your ticket.


Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

Please don't waste time and resources printing out your ticket.
I will have a list of attendees on the day, although it would be wise to make a note of your booking reference

Is my registration fee or ticket transferable?

As you can appreciate, transfers/reassignments do not apply to those who just do not show up.

However, in cases of illness or unforeseen circumstances I will be happy to transfer your booking to another of my walks on another date as long as you let me know at least 24 hours before your booked walk is due to start.

Alternatively ... perhaps you might be able to offer your ticket to a friend ... please see the next question...

Is it OK if the name on my ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends?

This is fine – just email/text me the name of the person who will be taking your place.

Is this tour suitable for wheelchairs?

Yes and no.

The walk will be mostly on standard pavements but we will be using a few narrow alleys and a short flight of steps. Some kerbs, where there are no pedestrian crossings, may also cause problems. These can all be circumnavigated but will add time to the tour.

Alternatively, a wheelchair-friendly version of the tour can be arranged for a group of five or more – please contact me for further details
