Angel and the heart of Islington at Christmastime
- 12 British pounds£12
- Outside Angel tube station, Islington High Street, N1 8XX
Angel, Islington. The festive spirit is in the very name of this part of London! Discover the history of the area - for centuries famed for its pastures, dairies, fresh water wells and pleasure gardens - and some of its associations with Christmas. Upper Street, Islington's main road and liveliest thoroughfare, is particularly magical in the build up to Christmas. Delve into its colourful past and enjoy its equally vibrant present through its eclectic range of shops, restaurants, theatres, pubs and cafes. After the walk, please join me for a drink in a nearby pub if you have the time (not included in the price of the walk ticket!). The walk lasts approximately two hours. It will take place come rain or shine, so please be prepared for all weather conditions! Start: Outside Angel tube station, Islington High Street, N1 8XX. Finish: a short walk from Highbury & Islington tube station. Praise for London On The Ground's other tours of the area: "A great afternoon visiting a part of Islington I thought I knew but found out more and more about!"
