East End Walking Tour in London
US$15.58
Overview
Dive into London’s eclectic East End on this unique 2-hour walking tour and discover the district’s legendary arts scene. Marvel at the vivid street art of artists like Banksy and C215, check out quirky fashion boutiques and learn where to find London’s best curry houses. Your guide will also fill you in on the area’s rich history and heritage, from notorious former residents like Jack the Ripper and the Kray twins, to the modern-day hipsters and thriving Bangladeshi communities.
What to Expect
The Tour starts on Liverpool Street side of Liverpool Street Station. During the next 2 hours you'll learn about some of the darker and murkier history of London, things you won't hear about during your stereotypical tour of London.

You'll learn about the area in Roman times through to Victorian times and beyond and discover stories about the rich history of immigration into the area, including the modern day immigrants to the area (the Hipsters!). The our will also cover iconic characters of the area including Jack the Ripper, the Kray twins, the Elephant Man and many, many more.

The second half of the tour focuses more on the culture of street art in the area and guests will get the opportunity to view works by famous artists such as BANKSY, C215, Invader and Shepherd Fairy. The tour will finish on Brick Lane, infamous for it's 50-odd curry houses (the largest number of Indian restaurants outside of the Indian sub-continent!). We are also very happy to give you recommendations of where you should go for lunch after the conclusion of the tour.
