Islington Between the Wars

Angel tube station, London

Guided by

Take a walk along chic Upper Street and its surrounds to experience the hidden history of the first half of the 20th century. There was no NHS, so where did the poor go for treatment and where could they get free milk?  What were the shops like? What was showing at the cinemas? Where could you place a bet when betting was illegal? What is the “hole in the wall" and who used it?

Local experts Philip Nelkon and Janet Foster follow the trail of Islington between the wars. This authentic walk is based on the recollections of Janet's mother who lived in the area throughout the period.

ISLINGTON BETWEEN THE WARS – THE PRACTICALS

The Islington Between the Wars walk takes place at 10.45 am on Saturday, xxxxxxx. The meeting point is just outside the exit of AngelTube.

LONDON WALKS PRIVATE WALKS

If you can't make one of the regularly scheduled, just-turn-up, public Islington Between the Wars Walks do think about booking one as a private tour. If you go private you can have the Islington Between the Wars Walk – or any other London Walk – on a day and at a time that suits your convenience. We'll tailor it to your requirements. And – always with private London Walks and tours – we go to great lengths to make sure the guide-walker(s) "fit" is well-nigh perfect. Ring Fiona or Noel or Mary on 020 7624 3978 or email us at london@walks.com and we'll set it up and make it happen for you. A private London Walk – they're good value for an individual or couple and sensational value for a group – makes an ideal group or educational or birthday party or office (team-building) or club outing.

GIVE THE GIFT OF LONDON WALKS

A private London Walk makes a fab present – be it a birthday or anniversary or get-to-know-your-new neighbourhood gift or Christmas present or whatever. Merchandise schmerchandise (gift wrapped or not) – but giving someone an experience, now that's special. Memories make us rich.
