Hackney Historic Buildings Trust
St Augustine's Tower Open Day
11.00am to 5.00pm
FREE. Donations welcome
The medieval tower and Georgian church face each other across Hackney’s churchyard, a verdant oasis, especially in May.
Visitors to the Tower can enjoy our rugged medieval building, and walk up the narrow spiral staircase (135 steps) to squeeze out on to the roof where there are great views.
Our exceptional clock dates from the 16th century and visitors can get up close to inspect its workings. In the former bellringers’ chamber there is an exhibition of the history of Hackney telling the story of one of London’s most interesting and vibrant boroughs.
Our guides will be on hand to describe the history of the building and there will be light refreshments on the terrace overlooking our glorious churchyard.
Last entry 4.45 p.m.
