Meet at 11.30 am

Outside (not inside) the Whitechapel Ideas Store (aka Whitechapel Library) 321 Whitechapel Road E1 1BU.

(Next to the Blind Beggar Pub).

Nearest Underground Station – Whitechapel – 5 minutes walk away.


The walk will take approximately two hours but will only be about ½ mile long!

We will end up back at the Blind Beggar for (if desired) a spot of lunch and liquid refreshment!

A vast array of history, a kaleidoscope of antiquity will be uncovered…

In chronological order:

The Peasant’s Revolt

Captain Cook

The Salvation Army

Jack the Ripper

The Siege of Sidney Street

The Krays

Along with much much more.


All for a small £5 donation to the Stairway to Heaven Memorial Trust – the charity dedicated to providing a lasting memorial to the victims of the Bethnal Green Tube Disaster
