Description

Brick Lane Tour – Multicultural Mixing Pot

Join Pete on his 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 Jack the Ripper and the philanthropists that changed the face of the east-end, and the world. Visit a Mosque that has had a very long, multi-faith history and a school with a ghastly secret. Hear about a truly engrossing mystery involving a man’s disappearance from a room locked from the outside, and the legacy left by the different waves of immigrants to this most fascinating part of the East End.

  • Discover hidden areas and lesser known streets around Brick Lane
  • Learn about the area’s rich history of multiculturalism and radical politics
  • Experience the area’s recent gentrification from a new perspective
  • Christ Church
  • Spitalfields Market
  • Brick Lane Mosque

“I went on the Brick Lane tour with Pete, who was a genial, informal, well-informed guide. His insights from the perspective of homelessness, and sound grounding in classic Brick Lane themes such as various waves of immigration, the ripper, street art, and the Match Girls’ strike made for a wonderful tour” TripAdvisor April 2018
