Visit the Wonder: Art and Science on the Brain

The writer Arthur Machen (1863-1947) called it ‘a district both devious and obscure’ and promised that the explorer would find ‘wonder, mystery, awe, the sense of a new world and an undiscovered realm’. What kept drawing Machen back to this place?

Robert Kingham leads a walk around Finsbury, the lesser-known London district to the north-west of the Barbican, exploring how the history of an area can imprint itself on the psychology of one person, and what this tells us about our subconscious relationship with our urban environment.
