A Circular Walk around Hatton Garden

We will go back in time to when the area was open countryside, then occupied by princes of the church, aristocrats and visiting royalty. We will cover its changes from residential to commercial use and the development of London’s diamond centre. But crime is never far away from diamonds, precious stones and expensive watches and there are stories to be told. Hatton Garden and its surroundings have been home to a shifting population of Italians, Irish and incomers from the countryside and we will visit the neighbourhoods they lived in.
