Event Details

London never stays still. Here’s an example – see how City Road Basin changed from a hive of industry to a place to live, work and have fun!

A stroll down the City Road brings us to Islington’s growing Skyscraper Corridor. Discover the transformation which is changing City Road Basin from a relic of the industrial past. Once it was a major canalside hub for industry, warehousing and utilities; now there are places to live of all shapes and sizes, parks and gardens, boats and canoes. And a few reminders of how things used to be.

Join Rick Smith, a Clerkenwell and Islington Guide, as we explore this fascinating part of the city which is becoming ever more visible on our skyline but whose real delights are tucked away. Oh, and there may be sharks. Yes, sharks. If they haven’t swum off down the canal. All will be explained!

The walk starts and ends at Angel tube station.
