East London Tour–Empire, Power & People
- 14 British pounds£14
- Brixton Orchard, Brixton Hill, London SW2 2AA.
This part of our London tour is around 2 hours and will start is focussed on The City and Shoreditch. The tour isn't just focused on architecture, it takes you around significant places that belong to the story of London through its immigrant history. The city is often called a "melting pot," but many people don't know how London became the diverse city we know it to be. This walking tour isn't focused on one single narrative or an individual's story, instead, we hope it will show you a different side of the city while delving into colonial history and how it led the way for thousands from former colonies like Bangladesh found themselves on the shores of Britain. We hope to open up the conversation around colonial history and immigration in a comfortable space. This history is often left off of the classroom and British history books but deserves to be told.
