The De Beauvoir Walk will take place in 2019 on:

  • Saturday, 16th March at 11am
  • Saturday, 14th December at 11am

De Beauvoir is unique in Hackney, with its stuccoed 19th century villas more reminiscent of London’s West End. Typical of Hackney, the area offers a walk of contrasts, revealing a tale from medieval manor to today’s loft apartments and trendy eateries, taking in mad houses, factories and canals along the way.
