In the table clicking on the walk name will take you to a page that provides more information about a walk (including the starting place and details of any costs).  Some walks need to be booked in advance.   The price in the cost column is the maximum amount charged for an adult – a lower concessionary rate may be available and will be shown on the more information page.

Clicking on the guides name might enable your browser to send an email to the guide asking for more information.

Please note – when you book or attend these walks you are making a contract with the individual guide and not the Clerkenwell & Islington Guiding Association.  Please contact the individual guide if you want to know more about the walk.

Our special walks cover all aspects and themes in the Borough of Islington and the Smithfield area. Ask about the John Wesley historic walk, Criminal Islington, Beguiling Barnsbury or our Four Theatres and a River walks.  These walks can be used by businesses or other organisations as social or team building events, and are also suitable for celebrating birthdays or other special arrangements.
