Brick Lane Tour – Multicultural Mixing Pot

Use - Page Profile

“Thank you so much for the great tour yesterday (Brick Lane tour) with Cris! Really enjoyed it:) He opened my eyes on street art, homelessness and unseen places! Will definitely go on other tours.” TripAdvisor April 2015

Join Cris on this fascinating walking tour taking in the sights and sounds of Brick Lane and the lesser known streets of this vibrant community. This multicultural area, a primer for trade unions, women’s equality and the Labour party is no longer a melting pot of the poor but now trendy and expensive. Hear about the sinister tales of Christ Church, the historical Spitalfields Market and a Mosque that has had a very long, multi-faith history. Cris will introduce you to street art and show you some incredible pieces from world famous artists. Hear about the first fashion emporium and the legacy left by the different waves of immigrants to this most fascinating part of the East End.

Meeting point: Outside Shoreditch High Street Station, Bethnal Green Road E1 6AW. Next to the entrance of the Powerleague 5-a-side football pitch. Look out for Cris and his Unseen Tours sign!
