We will meet at Brixton Orchard and have a few moments to introduce ourselves and the tour.
The first part of the tour takes you through Brixton, a staple London neighbourhood that has a significant cultural history. Learn about what makes this area so notable while walking through the market and main streets and learning about the rich Caribbean culture that has developed here against all odds.
Depart Brixton and jump on the Thameslink (please note if there are works or disruptions the alternative will be a bus,) for a quick journey while observing a spectacular view of London. End up in The City of London and be greeted by the grand, imposing buildings. Meander through the small alleys and weel-maintained streets while delving into the fascinating history of how London's financial capital came to be and understand where the money really came from.
Walk from The City through along the main street stopping in some notable locations while listening to how the different communities including the Jewish community and Bengali community have shaped this part of London.
The adventure comes to an end at Brick Lane, say goodbye to your guide and new friends!

For the full 3+ hour tour, there is a stop in between on public transport which takes about 10 minutes. The ticket is not included since many people have travel cards or prefer to pay contactless which also reduces paper waste in printing tickets. The ticket costs between £2 - £4.
