Secrets of Stepney Green

  • Stepney Green Underground Station, Mile End Road London E1 4AQ United Kingdom (map)

Stepney is an area steeped in history and intrigue that over time has attracted the rich, the famous and the infamous -- monarchs, explorers and people of religion and of charity. It grew -- and declined -- with the London Docks and was one of the most heavily bombed areas of London during the Second World War. On our walk, we will see into Stepney's rich past through its churches, palaces and gorgeous Georgian mansions. All around, we will see examples of its faded grandeur. It is where our guide Daniella was brought up and where her family can be traced back over 200 years -- so she knows it well.
