“London's East End has always had a dark side” History Channel

Why we love it

The now fashionable East End was once a sprawling mass of closely built houses that created a labyrinth of lanes, snicketts and alleyways. On this privately guided tour, discover the area's dark and mysterious past, as well as the plight and legacies of its marginalised immigrant groups.

What's Included?

  • Experience a privately guided two-hour tour of London's East End
  • Explore the history of the place and people of the East End, a part of town so notoriously unnerving is was left out of Victorian maps!
  • Visit the areas around Spitalfields, Shoreditch, Liverpool Street, Whitechapel, and Bethnal Green, and learn the origins of famous place names like Brick Lane and Houndsditch

Description

On its surface, people envisage the historic East End as a tight-knit community of happy-go-lucky Cockneys. But beneath that is a more sinister tale: one of overcrowding, poverty, violent crime, grimy industry and social unrest.

On this privately guided tour, you'll uncover the stories of the East End's misunderstood misfits and notorious gangsters. Rather than glamorising tall tales of criminals, it’s a tour that tells the story of the people of the East End and their lives. In particular, you'll learn about the plights and legacies of immigrant groups from all over the world. These are groups who have inhabited the East End for well over two centuries, including Jews from Portugal, Spain, Poland and Russia as well as refugees from Ireland, France, Bangladesh.
