Along the way our friendly guides will tell you stories of the art, culture and mental health history of the local area.
Learn more about the history of Hackney's psychiatric hospitals,
the hidden river of Hackney Brook, the local memorial to Blind Fred, a match seller, and the rich history of non conformism in Hackney!
The walks are fully accessible, free and open to all.
