Certain shadows cast themselves more darkly than others over the East End: but what do you know about the dark stories that lurk within the history of Bethnal Green?

You may know what Ronnie Kray did at the Blind Beggar in 1966, but what did Arthur Harding do at the Bluecoat Boy in 1911? And what connected Oswald Mosley with the Blade Bone? Why should you think twice before accepting a drink from John Bishop and Thomas Williams? Or letting the Reverend Benjamin Russen teach your daughters?

Bethnal Green’s past is littered with dark deeds and dodgy dudes, but these are important moments in the history of law and order in this country. As the lid is lifted, come and peek at the darkness that lurks beneath.

Meet outside the Churchyard, St Leonard's Church, Shoreditch High Street.

The walk will take approximately 2 hours. For information on travel, please use Transport for London's Journey Planner.
