Henri's tour of Shoreditch was interesting and highlighted new and different things, even to a Londoner familiar with the area. It was great to learn about his story and how these tours developed, providing a source of income and opportunity to show off local knowledge...More

For a glimpse of Georgian and Victorian London at its
most pristine, or a peek into what's apt to be the
next big global trend, the hipster zone of
Spitalfields can provide hours of amazement. Around
the clock, this is a haven for early morning bargain
hunters sizing up its street markets, foodie foragers
throughout the day, or late night revelers hitting
some of London's most popular bars and clubs.
