NEW: The Backstreets of Islington - tour with Blue Badge guide Laurence Summers

Meet Angel Pub , Islington High St - opposite Angel tube station 11-11.15

Fee £10

Low lives, salvation seekers and an array of just about everything in between is dotted along this walk littered with varying architecture and a neighbourhood which, though largely gentrified, still retains an edge.

The high street was a path for coach and horses in the days Smithfield was a bustling livestock market and the area was abuzz with theatre and music hall having played host to Charlie Chaplin, Gracie Fields and .....the Sex Pistols!

Chuck in a world famous canal, the obligatory stunning church and maverick playwright Joe Orton and you have a walk that has no theme yet just about every theme...........................
