The Clarence Tavern
Part of the first ever Urban Tree Festival, made possible by donations from 70 generous crowd funding supporters and city-greening charity Trees for Cities. We are delighted to welcome Paul Wood, author of ‘London Street Trees‘ (Guardian Nature Books of 2017) to entice you to Explore the Urban Forest in Stoke Newington
Discover the remarkable diversity of exotic and native trees planted in this part of Hackney – London’s Urban Arboretum. We will see rare trees such as Wild Service and one of London’s largest Handkerchief trees. The walk will start outside the Stoke Newington Tea House pub, on the corner of Bouverie Road and Stoke Newington Church Street and finish at the award winning Woodberry Wetlands nature reserve, where you’ll be free to stroll around the reserve and enjoy the wildlife and views as well as the Coal House Café.
This event is not suitable for younger children. Older children can attend but only if accompanied- they will not have to pay for a ticket.
