- Guide: Andrew Davies
We will explore Walter Sickert’s Hanging Gardens of Islington and the Regent’s Canal plus the picturesque remains of the seventeenth-century New River whose instigator, Sir Hugh Myddelton, stands proudly on Islington Green.
Featured too is the old “Aggie” (now a smart business centre), the old Collins music hall (now a bookshop) and the flat where playwright Joe Orton was murdered.
Plus the Angel itself, several old cinemas and theatres and finally a square containing a most delightful folly. No wonder Islington is so sought after…..
