Event description

Description

Who would have thought this street in the east end of London, could pack in so much history? This walk from Let’s Discover London is filled with fascinating stories from the local area in just 1 hour 15 minutes. The gripping Krays, the gung-ho Winston Churchill, the historic riots against the Fascists, the sad story of the elephant man, the nurse heroine Edith Clavell. It’s a high street that reflects huge changes in the last two centuries and not a Jack the Ripper Story in sight.
