Get the lowdown on how to make the most of your time in this corner of London, from what to eat to where to drink?
With your local expert to lead the way, you’ll discover a whole new side to the city. Historically, much poorer than its cousin to the west, it has in more recent times found its fortune in skyscrapers and creatives - a true rag to riches tale.
The stories heard here are not of kings and politicians but of the real people who made this area - cockneys and costermongers, brave Blitz-era civilians and Eastern European Jewish settlers, Bengali Muslims and fleeing French Protestants, artists, fashionistas, trendsetters, foodies, radicals, 1950s gangs, Victorian murderers, workhouse paupers and everybody in between.
Starting near the iconic Tower of London, you’ll duck into the backstreets to discover hipster markets and Beigel shops, old breweries, a religious building that tells of centuries of immigration, 18th-century weaver houses, old taverns, unbelievable street art from Banksy to Stik, global cuisine and a very different side to our fair city. These are the stories of extraordinary ‘ordinary’ people.
