Description

Busby's Folly

Islington is famous for its bars and restaurants but its been a place for merrymaking and entertainment for hundreds of years. This walk looks at the tea rooms, pleasure gardens, spas and alehouses that were popular in 18th century earning the name "Merrie Islington". Although the places themselves have long since gone, some traces remain and here we will hear about the sometimes bizarre entertainment on offer at The Prospect House, Busby's Folly, The London Spa and the many other establishments.
