SAVE Walking Tour, Camden Town, 5th August 2017
This tour has now sold out!
Join SAVE Britain's Heritage and author Tom Bolton on a walking tour of Camden Town. To mark the publication of his new book, 'Camden Town: Dreams of Another London', Tom is leading a walking tour of Camden’s culture, history and architecture for SAVE.
Camden Town sprang up in fields at the edge of London with the railways, and was soon a teeming mixture of dirt and poverty, factories and warehouses, outcasts and exiles, artists and writers, all sharing a few streets. Behind its tourist front, Camden today reflects every one of its lost identities. The walk will examine significant buildings, surviving and vanished, to reconstruct Camden’s past and consider its present.
