Davy, Vale, Bonnie & 50 people have enjoyed this activity

Full of contrasts and known as the "cradle of migration", Spitalfields is place of constant change with an ancient history. Placed on the fringe of the encroaching City we will discover the past, present and future of this bustling area of London.

You'll see the human story of Spitalfields, exploring what life was like for residents through the ages, why there's a street called Frying Pan Alley and walking the routes of Jack the Ripper's victims.

Starting near Liverpool Street Station, this won't just focus on poverty and crime of the area, this walk will highlight the perseverance and truly uplifting spirit of the East End.

The walk is led by Look Up London creator, Katie; a history enthusiast, guide and born and bred Londoner. Expect unusual facts, surprising stories and unnoticed gems on well-trodden streets, finishing at Aldgate East Station.

    Great walk. I'm a Londoner but almost everything spoken about was new to me! Katie is a very friendly and knowledgeable host. Would definitely go to another of her walks.
