Follow a trail of 1930s architecture to see how the area just south of Euston Road has evolved.

Join me to see some hidden delights in the gaps between the very old and the very new – specifically some lovely examples of Art Deco and Modernist architecture.

We'll meander through back streets and green squares to see evidence of inter-war technology and connections of various kinds. Plus impressive residential developments, sports halls, places of learning and social hubs.

It's also interesting to see how the design ideals of 1930s transcend time, as seen in a few post-WWII buildings and 21st century developments along the route.

At the end of the walk we'll look inside a 1930s pub that contains some marvellously evocative original marquetry. Do join me for an after-walk cocktail or a half of shandy.

Jane ParkerMy guiding style is inclusive, open and friendly.
The walking tours I offer are all on subjects I am genuinely interested in – each highlights a different facet of my personality. I am specifically interested in the changing face of our streets over time and how those changes have affected local communities and the social history of an area. I design and research every tour myself – and the research never ends.

As you can appreciate, transfers/reassignments do not apply to those who just do not show up.

However, in cases of illness or unforeseen circumstances I am happy to transfer your booking to another of my walks on another date as long as you let me know at least two hours before your booked walk is due to start.

This is fine – just email/text me the name of the person who will be taking your place – or just make it clear on arrival

The walk will be mostly on standard pavements and should not pose any problems further to those experienced on an average high street.
