Event description
Fun and fascinating walk through Spitalfields' hidden history

About this event

Full of contrasts and known as the “cradle of migration”, Spitalfields is place of constant change with an ancient history. Placed on the fringe of the encroaching City we will discover the past, present and future of this bustling area of London.

You’ll see the human story of Spitalfields, exploring what life was like for residents through the ages, why there’s a street called Frying Pan Alley and walking the same routes as - and learning more about - Jack the Ripper’s victims.

Starting near Liverpool Street Station, this won’t just focus on poverty and crime of the area, this walk will highlight the perseverance and truly uplifting spirit of the East End.

Tours are limited to 15 attendees.

  • "I've been on many many walking tours in London and this was definitively one of the best of them all." Mateus (Spitalfields)

Filled with interesting facts, stories and history lessons, Katie's tours are certainly a step above any others that I have previously been on in London." Alex (Fleet Street and Spitalfields)
