Description

Bring Your Baby Guided London Walks are sensitively devised to suit parents and carers of even the tiniest babies to enjoy London’s history. We can stop whenever you like to feed and change - without the stress of feeling you are holding up the group.

You are welcome to bring friends and family who do not also have a baby.

Walk starts at Angel tube station & ends at Highbury & Islington tube station

With a stop after about an hour at The Alpaca pub for refreshment, and/or lunch and baby change. You are not obligated to buy food.

This walk is written and guided by City of London guide and co-author of 'Women from Hackney's History', Sue Doe.

- The square that was home to George Orwell, Evelyn Waugh, and Bloomsbury Group artists Vanessa Bell (sister of Virgina Woolf) and Duncan Grant
