‘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 Saturday, October 3 by the taxi rank of King’s Cross Station.


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.
