Here is a brief description of what you will see on each of our free Haringey Heritage walks. If you have any questions please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Bruce Castle walk
Bruce Castle has been a Scottish king’s castle, a school and now Haringey’s museum. Its park has a 500 year old oak, and at nearby Tottenham cemetery we visit the grave of Bernie Grant, Tottenham’s most famous MP.
Muswell Hill walk
A place of pilgrimage in medieval times, Muswell Hill reinvented itself as a superb Edwardian suburb built with no pubs. It was bedsit land in the 1960s, now a desirable residential centre with the Parkland Walk, Highgate and Queens Wood within reach.
Lordship Recreation Ground walk
