Footprints of London run lots of guided walks in Clerkenwell and Islington. Our Islington walking tours are full of surprises, with tales of riot and rebellion, literary treats like walks following Charles Dickens’ Oliver Twist, hidden history walks that take you to tucked away alleys that have a story to tell, as well as some beautiful architecture.
