From Matches to Martyrs

  • Bow Road Underground Station, London E3 4DH (map)

The Secret History of Fairfield Road.

Starting on Bow Road we pass Poplar's Modernist Town Hall onto Fairfield Road itself. Here we visit the Match Factory where the famous strike of 1888 took place. We hear about riotous goings on at Bow Fair and learn the story behind Prime Minister Gladstone's Statue and much more. Ending by Bow Church in its delightful setting you'll find good onward transport links and a cafe for delicious coffee and cakes.
