Charles Booth Inspired Walks
Charles Booth inspired walks use Victorian philanthropist Charles Booth’s pioneering socio-economic study of London as we follow his actual routes and read from his notebook. Readings from famous diaries, literature and documents help to describe the past, present and future of each area.
The Charles Booth Inspired Deptford Walk is Royal Geographic Society’s most popular audio walk: http://www.discoveringbritain.org/walks/region/greater-london/london-deptford.html
Literature walks explore particular themes such as the urban mindset of Georgian Covent Garden, or the radical and religious history of Clerkenwell.
