Up the Cally’ – stories and legends of the Caledonian Road

Meet your guide – here’s Philip’s podcast about the walk.



To go on the Up the Cally walk meet Philip at 2.30 pm on Sunday, March 24 by the taxi rank of King’s Cross Station. The West side (front).

X marks the spot — the meeting point!

An amazingly varied walk on and around the Caledonian Road featuring visual treats like a mural, a clock tower and a famous Gothic-style prison. We learn about political meetings, fashionable markets, bombs, arms caches & espionage, its larger-than-life characters like Fishy Bill, & Prince Monolulu and how it got its name. Coming right up to date we’ll find out just why it’s such a popular and cheap place to live.

    This is a walk I’d been wanting to do for a while as it started off in an area familiar to me (Kings Cross) but then went very much off the usual territory for a London visitor such as myself. It was a great walk showing how even, what on the surface, seems like a fairly run of the mill part of London, includes fascinating snippets of history. This is something London Walks does really well, and Philip was an excellent guide showing us places we’d never have discovered on our own.
