Discover The East End
The East End is one of London’s most fascinating areas. With a long history of overpopulation, immigrants and poverty.
The East End has been known since the 19th Century as one of Britain’s poorest areas. After World War II, much of the neighbourhood was bombed and many people were relocated. A consistent wave of re-building has powered the area for a few decades now. Despite new buildings and many large companies that are now located in the East End, there is still a very alternative subculture that thrives in this eclectic area, where street art is a way of life and hipsters roam the streets.
Despite the recent move towards a slight degree of gentrification, the East End is still full of old, run-down streets that capture an eerie reminiscence of days past. This tour was designed to show the different faces of the East End and give you a good idea of what has changed and has remained the same over time.
