    Event description:
    ​Meet: Highbury and Islington station (Victoria and Overground lines). We explore the former rural retreat of the priors of St Bartholomew in the City. Canonbury displays 500 years of London’s history, from a Tudor country house to once-abandoned Georgian terraces, and in passing, we’ll discover a river that isn’t, hidden theatres, a futurist gallery and the homes of the famous and infamous. Led by John Finn, City Highlights
