Explore the colourful history of the Italian community in Clerkenwell and the area around Hatton Garden on this 90 minute guided walk with official local guides, Karen and Jo.
The walk brings to life London's 19th and 20th century "Little Italy" which had its hub in the steep and narrow streets of Clerkenwell known as "The Hill".
Discover a street life filled with organ grinders and fortune tellers, the exploits of gangster, Darby Sabini and his mob and the hugely successful Italian business men who set up in the streets around Hatton Garden, including Carlo Gatti who introduced icecream to the masses. Having also found out about the grinding poverty of Saffron Hill and the political exiles who fought for the unification of Italy the walk ends outside the famous Terroni Italian Deli in Clerkenwell Road, where gelato and other Italian delicacies can be enjoyed.
