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.

You can also arrange special or customised walks in the Borough of Islington covering any area or theme.  These are ideal for family celebrations,  or business team building or social events.   For further information or if you want to give any feedback on Clerkenwell and Islington guides, please contact us by email at info@ciga.org.uk
