Having already been on one of Sean's fascinating tours (Deptford) I was keen to do another and was not disappointed. Informative, surprising, and thoroughly enjoyable. I will certainly sign up for the Whitechapel one!

Follow in the footsteps, literally, of Charles Booth, the C19th philanthropist and reformer led by Sean Patterson, who manages to combine wit, knowledge and a keen sense of the changing urban environment with a spritely pace ... His tour of Clerkenwell lasts two and a...More
