Next month sees an occasional opening of the Caledonian Park Clock Tower and a chance to climb the narrow steps to the very top for amazing views across North London.
It’s a very steep and in places, slightly scary climb but the reward is impressive once you get up there.
Tours are free, but by ticket only, and these will be released this coming Saturday (19th May) at 8am on the Islington council website.
The tours themselves take place on Sunday 18th June as part of the Open Garden Squares weekend.
Based on previous open days, there’s usually a large display at the ground about the history of the park and the tower — and the plans to restore the tower.
