Fascinating 2 hour walking tour by Ben Slow. He was very informative and well organised with excellent knowledge. His passion about the area is quite infectious. Amazing (and surprising) art. Can't say any more - you need to find out for yourselves!

I am a native Londoner and although born in south west London my family came from Canning Town and other parts of north east London. I still shudder at the memory of my handicapped aunt having to live in a hideous tenement a couple of hundred yards east of the Tower of London, with no bathroom and having to share... More

This is a part of London that has more history than the rest of London put together. That's why I live here. East London is as vibrant and colorful as it's past. You can experience Brick lane market in the daytime and do the Jack the ripper tour in the Evening. There are some of the best pubs in London... More

I have a gaff in Mile End opposite Mile End Leisure Centre. I love the East End. I was actually born in London in 1953 unlike most other people that live there. This means I really am qualified to rate the place, again, unlike most other people. It's a great place, I LOVE it !

Love the eastend of London, been there so many times over the last 30 years or so. My most recent visit was March of this year and stayed in Bethnal Green Travelodge which was so handy and close to everything as well as being on the Central Line of the underground.

The East End consists of many small and quite distinct neighbourhoods: Mile End is an increasingly affluent neighbourhood about one mile (hence the name) from the City of London along the Whitechapel Road. While not as vibrant as its neighbours in Bethnal Green and Brick Lane, it has a charm of its own which makes this district worth a visit.... More

This walking food tour was very much worth the time and money. The walk was at an easy pace and the tour was informative as well as tasty. Our tour guide (Emily) made our experience both fun and interesting. We experienced a variety of London favorites, mine being the bread and butter pudding.

London's Jewish community once lived here. Most have now moved north and, today, the East End is populated by a rich array of different cultures from across the globe. This is reflected in the eclectic range of food on offer and the interesting shops. However, beyond the colourful facades of the buildings, there is a fascinating history and a walking... More
