De Beauvoir

This walk will take place on Wednesday, 24th August, 2022 at 6pm.

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.
