De Beauvoir is unique in Hackney, with its stuccoed 19th century villas more reminiscent of London’s West End.

Typical of Hackney, the walk offers a series of contrasts, revealing a tale from a medieval manor to today’s loft apartments and trendy eateries. We take in mad houses, factories and canals along the way. Sean Gubbins can tell you why the area has a French name, show you the Mole Man’s house and explain the development that never was.

Meeting point: Entrance to Haggerston Station, Lee Street, E8 4DY

End point: A 7 minute walk from station near the Kingsland Basin, N1 5ET.

You must book your place in advance.
