Beyond the control of the City of London, Islington has always harboured radical thinkers and writers – let’s pay them a lunchtime visit…
Just moments from the bustle of Angel junction there are oases of calm and creativity.
Meander along the course of the New River to discover:
- the man who influenced the French Revolution from a local pub
- the tireless dedication of a great writer to his troubled sister
- the chequered history of London’s favourite canal
- the story of Shakespeare’s missing theatre
- the Angel’s hidden angel
AND a brutal murder.
