About this Event

In the course of an hour we'll visit five different special places - Old Street Roundabout, Wesley's Chapel and House, Bunhill Fields, Quaker Gardens and end at LSO St Luke's . We'll talk about John and Susannah Wesley, see an unusual toilet, see the Lord Mayor's bodyguards, discover an inventor whose ideas power the internet, and one of his colleagues who made today's life insurance. We also learn more about the inventor of the London Omnibus, visit a burial ground that is on of the oldest in London, meet a publican who had an unusual hobby, and talk about the second best lady of the night in C17th century London.

This walk is presented in partnership with Islington Museum.
