This East London tour is perfect for Chinese visitors wanting to see a trendy, up-and-coming part of the city, as well as an area steeped in history with many stories to tell. From Brick Lane to Liverpool Street you will see some of London’s best graffiti, find out where to buy the best curry in town and walk the streets and narrow lanes where Britain’s most notorious criminal, Jack the Ripper, stalked his prey! We’ll even treat you to a few English specialities from some of the area’s coolest shops.
We’ll show you some of London’s grandest Georgian architecture and teach you about the different kinds of people, from across the globe, who have settled here over the years. We’ll tell you about the origins of Big Ben’s big bell (something not many British people even know!) and take you through some typical London markets – both old and new. You may even spot something you like, and we can help you negotiate a good price.
The East End is not without drama and gruesome stories… We’ll tell you all about the disease that killed over 600 people in the city in the mid 19th century, reveal how it was stopped, and how East London has transformed itself since. On this tour, you’ll get a feel for just how multicultural London is and why people from all religions and all walks of life choose to call it home.
This walking tour is ideal for those wanting to explore the colourful alleyways and market streets beneath the skyscrapers of London’s ultra-modern Square Mile, and it’s an opportunity to really get to grips with the dark history and colourful culture of this captivating city.
All entrance fees are included, but you will need some money for lunch and to cover transport to and from the tour.
