What our clients say about us

I’ve joined two of the Association’s walks, one on Islington’s involvement in the Spanish Civil War and another on Activism in Islington in the 70s and 80s. Both walks were excellent; well researched; expertly led; and a wealth of local information relating to the topics. I would recommend the Association’s guided walks to anyone.

JB on  Tripadvisor

Had a very enjoyable guided walk in Islington today visiting places associated with artists who once lived in the area and painted local landmarks. Knowledgeable and friendly guide who shared many amusing anecdotes about former inhabitants of this fascinating part of London. An informative and fun walk. Will definitely book with them again.

I had the fantastic opportunity to take a tour of Canonbury Tower with an excellent guide. She was very welcoming, knowledgeable and smart. I was so impressed by this tour and guide that I look forward to participating in other tours.
