Wonderfully Wicked Whitechapel

  • Whitechapel Underground Station, London E1 1DG United Kingdom (map)

A walk for Bank Holiday Monday!

Come on today’s walk and find out what makes Whitechapel such as wonderful but also wicked place. An area that has welcomed both Lenin and Stalin and had been home to Mr Tescos, the Krays and Jack the Ripper.

You will find out about the Elephant Man, William Booth and the Salvation Army, the bell foundry that made Big Ben and where the "white" chapel really was.

And – how does your guide know all these stories – well she is Whitechapel-born herself
