A short walk from Shadwell Station. A very effective artwork successfully illustrating the very important stand taken by a vast swathe of people against the fascists. Probably more important than the poll tax riot. An increasing modern relevance in the face of current political uncertainty...More
This mural depicts the clash that took place on the 4th October 1936. Great mural to look at if you are in the area which started in 1976 and finished in 1993 and restored in 2011 due to vandalism and graffiti. It is powerful with...More
We actually stumbled across this one day en route somewhere else, but it had always been on our list to visit. An important memorial to the battle of cable street and an important visual reminder of London's socialist history.

Whether you're here for its dynamic street life, world class galleries or famed curry houses, you're bound to be wowed by the uniquely cosmopolitan flavor of Whitechapel. Long gone are the days when Jack the Ripper stalked its streets. And despite his mysterious legacy bringing throngs of curiosity driven tour groups to its back alleys and otherwise serene garden squares, these days you're more likely to catch a
cutting edge fashionista scurrying through its age old lanes than criminals of any sort.
