A walking tour in aid of World Jewish Relief's Ukraine Crisis appeal, offered in association with London Walks

About this event

We make no charge for admission to this event. Instead, we invite participants to make a donation to World Jewish Relief's Ukraine Crisis appeal.

We will take a journey through the streets and alleys of London to discover the thousand-year history of the Jews in England. From the arrival of a Jewish community from Normandy in 1066/67 to the Kindertransport children of 1938/39, Jews have played important roles in the unfolding drama of British history. On our journey we will encounter the Jews of medieval London, the unfortunate Jewish doctor who inspired the creation of Shylock, Queen Victoria’s favourite Prime Minister, the Jewish stockbroker who saved the British government during the 1745 Jacobite rebellion, the Protestant rabble-rouser who became an Orthodox Jew and other colourful characters. We will visit some of the most spectacular sites in the City. We will also reveal the little-known Jewish associations of some of London’s most famous landmarks.
