What you’ll do

Join this guided walking tour, inspired by our Living with Buildings exhibition, through the radical history of Somers Town, a place of architectural and institutional experimentation. We will explore the buildings and people that shaped the local area’s history of social deprivation and progressive politics.

Where we’ll be

This tour will start at Wellcome Collection before heading offsite. This walk will be suitable for all fitness levels, but please get in touch if you have any accessibility queries.
