Event Details


Come and spend an autumn morning exploring the history and architecture of the streets and gems of Clerkenwell.

Clerkenwell was one of London’s first suburbs when it became a fashionable quarter for wealthy inhabitants escaping the City in the 17th century, before it later became known for its over-crowded slums and radical activities.  In recent decades, it has become a heartland for the creative industries, in disused craft workshops, warehouses and markets, and the area will become the new home for the Museum of London.

On this autumn amble, we will explore revolutionaries (Wat Tyler, Stalin and Lenin), monasteries (Carthusian), residences (Hercule Poirot), prisons (the Clerkenwell House of Detention), burial sites (Crossrail excavations of Black Death victims) and one of the City’s most hidden Churches, St Bartholomew-the-Less and its links with William Hogarth.

The Walk will be led by Meg Ryder, a Londoner who hails from Pimlico.  Meg is a qualified solicitor who left the law to establish bespoke walking tours in London to follow her passion for all things historical, artistic and architectural. Meg has a Masters in History from Edinburgh University, and studied History of Art and Architectural History in Rome.

We will meet at 10.45am for a 11am start. This event is for members only.
