We’ll meet at the conveniently located Finsbury Park Station (on Victoria, Piccadilly underground lines).
Often touted as one of London’s great hidden gems, this secret nature walk follows the line of former VIctorian railway line. This is great opportunity to ask all those questions you may have about London, seeing some of London’s victorian heritage as well as hearing stories about famous faces associated with the local area from Bob Dylan and Stephen King to Ray Davies and Simon Pegg.
A 250 year old bakery with a superb selection of treats both savoury and sweet. Included in your tour is a sausage roll or pasty for all, this is a true local fayre.
After breakfast you can choose to join The London Storyteller on a relaxing stroll to one of the highest points in London where a one-of-a-kind Victorian Pleasure Palace is situated offering superb views of the city. Its heritage stretches back over a 150 years and has been a significant location for some iconic moments in British cultural history during the 20th century.
Connecting via a short cab ride, we’ll visit a much storied historic London village with over two thousand years of history, which has been home to everyone from the Romans to lovers of Charles II to Monty Python and Sting. As well as its famed graveyard and charming Georgian, Edwardian and Victorian architecture; Highgsate sits adjacent to Hampstead Heath and nearby Kenwood House.
