CLERKENWELL....Guided walking tour

Yet another great walk of hidden london led by Barrie, this time we visit Clerkenwell and discover a number of hidden gems

Jewellery, some special churches and viva Italia

Clerkenwell is one of those places one drives past, travels through but rarely actually visits. Well this walk shows you what you have been missing . So close to the city, so close to central London but more than any other part of London it seems to retain its village atmosphere, with a serenity that is in contrast to its location.

Unless you are of Italian descent it's doubtful you will know of the area's connection with Italian immigration in the nineteenth century, so much history, so much to learn about.

This walk is also so good for romancing couples as you can get to know each other in one of the many restaurants on the best food street in London, buy a ring in the city's jewellery quarter then get married in one of its great churches, and thats not all. Find out about the postal system, see iconic social housing and visit where magicians go to buy their tricks, ands last but not least find out why its actually called Clerkenwell!

The walk will be the usual £10 cash on the day and takes a bit over two hours but time will fly on this great tour. Any questions or queries contact Barrie on 07860 911393 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
