Event description

Description

Founded by the Saxons over 1000 years ago, Wapping has played a pivotal place in London’s history.

On today’s tour we will discover some of London’s most interesting areas of docks which although was greatly bombed in Second World War, was regenerated in the 1980s.

We will hear stories of pirates and executions as well as murderers and riots

We will walk past the former HQ of the Murdoch Empire as well as the World’s first under water tunnel

The church where Ross married Emily … even though he was really in love with Rachel as well as the birthplace of Alf and the Silly Moo

As well as stopping at the views that inspired Turner and Whistler – we will end up at one of the most historical pubs in London – the Prospect of Whitby

Please note : we will be meeting outside Shadwell Overground Station and not Shadwell DLR Station - both are less than 1 minute away from each other
