About this Event

On this walk take a stroll with Ade around Whitechapel and Stepney, following in the footsteps of Stalin, Oswald Mosley, and Dr Barnardo, to name but a few.

Here we dig deeper around some of the ‘isms’ that have long been a part of, and at the heart of this historical part of East London.

To be honest, there is enough material in Whitechapel and Stepney to do never ending walks, but this is just a taster of some of the more famous or infamous people who have trudged these streets of the capital.

Rather than call myself ‘a guide’, I’d rather be known simply as a bloke who has done a bit more research into an area of London than the average Joe!

I won’t wear a costume, read from a script etc,

I will however just babble on about stuff that I’m deeply passionate about, and hope that you will be also.

Think of me as a mate who shares your interest in London’s rich history, and a fella you’d like to have a pint with.

I don’t want to give you a history lesson but if you want a "guide" that digs deeper, then I think I’m your man.

Take a stroll with Ade, a qualified London Borough Guide
