Explore aspects of Clerkenwell's rich and turbulent history that aren't easy to access. Our tour leader, local historian and former local councillor George Allan, will weave together themes of civic magnificence alongside the background of brutal imprisonment, terrorism, show trials and public executions. Venues to be visited include the former Finsbury Town Hall, the scene of the Clerkenwell Outrage of 1867 and the Georgian Sessions House on Clerkenwell Green...and possibly others!
