The London of Ronnie and Reggie Kray

  • Whitechapel Station, Court Street - Temporary Exit London E1 1DG (map)

On this walk we will be exploring an area of London with an infamous and violent past – the East End of the 1960s dominated by the feared Kray Twins. Who were Ronnie and Reggie Kray? Two loving sons badly treated by the judicial system? Or hardened criminals who deserved everything they got? On this walk you will see the streets where they lived, the schools they played in and the pubs they frequented, learn how they operated - the protection rackets, the robberies, intimidation and murders - and visit the site of their most notorious murder. In researching this walk, Daniella spoke to members of her own family who lived in the East End during this period and who encountered the Krays to get a unique insight into this most infamous chapter in the history of London.
