The adjacent historic districts of Clerkenwell & Smithfield – beyond the City Wall – conjure images of monastic solemnity, riotous gathering, execution and cattle-droving.

Throughout the centuries these enigmatic places – synonymous with independent thinking – have survived and adapted to external changes thrust upon them. Today they are arguably facing their greatest challenge – and inevitable change – with the opening of the Elizabeth Line later this year. 

Blue Badge Guide David Thompson leads this fascinating walk which will trace the history and the development of the area's urban fabric – and to consider what the future may have in store.
