Barbican and Smithfield

 

 

Meeting point

Starts and ends at St Paul's Cathedral

Description

In a City of contrasts this walk takes in two very different and distinctive areas.
We start in the Barbican, the great modernist residential development that arose from the ashes of bombing in WWII, then on to Smithfield, once a ‘smooth field’ for jousting and fairs, now home to a meat market and London’s oldest hospital.
