Join The Gentle Author on their walking tour of sightseeing and storytelling, guided by a member of the local community and supplemented with archive photography and paintings.
Ramble through two thousand years of culture in the heart of London and encounter some of the people and places that make this ancient neighbourhood distinctive. Discover a rich and diverse history of resourcefulness driven by successive waves of migration from across the world – Huguenots, Jews, Irish and Bengalis among many others – telling the story of how modern Britain was created.
Follow in the footsteps of all who came before, with a keen eye and an open heart, to experience the manifold wonders of Spitalfields.
The tours conclude in the drawing-room of a three hundred-year-old house with complimentary tea and freshly baked cakes.
There are nine tour dates, starting on Friday 15 April and ending on Sunday 8 May.
