Holloway’s Heyday – The Oxford Street of the North

June 4 @ 11:00 - 13:00

A time-travelling guided walk taking us back to when Holloway was the go-to shopping zone for the upwardly-mobile Victorian middle classes. Find out how this area quickly evolved to offer North London’s finest selection of drapery, finery, furnishings and tailoring, as well as beautiful restaurants and top-end entertainment, all accessed by excellent wide roads and frequent transport services. Hear about, and see evidence of, large Victorian emporiums and department stores, variety theatres, tea rooms, trains and trams.
