Heart of Hackney

This walk will take place on Thursday, 28th July at 6.30pm

The walk will include a visit to Hackney Museum, locating 17th century Sutton House and climbing 135 steps to the top of the 13th century St. Augustine’s Tower, to admire the view over Hackney and beyond on a summer’s evening, which being English could be rain or shine!
