Heroes and Villains of London

What to Expect
You will hear some unique stories as you go along, through some of London's smallest, most narrow alleyways to discover the true reality of what life for some of the heroes and villains that belonged to London's East End was really like. You will hear about the likes of Jack the Ripper, the Elephant man, the Kray Twins, William Booth and Dick Turpin. The further into the alleyways you go, the more likely you are to witness the Edwardian houses that have been hidden away from public view, yet hold some of the best secrets.
Until you go on this tour, you won't realise quite how unique some of their life styles were, and how their daily actions helped the end result become a statement - such a statement that we are still talking and learning about the scenarios today.

went on the Heroes and Villians tour with Jonny, and wasn't disappointed, he really knew his stuff and showed us loads of quirky things that we walk past every day, and never noticed! We were hesitant to book after reading some reviews, but so glad...More
