Greet your private guide at the Goat Statue on Brushfield Street and receive a cultural overview of London’s East End. Areas such as Shoreditch and Brick Lane have recently undergone a radical transformation from working-class neighborhoods to trendy districts famed for cutting-edge fashion and art.
Start by strolling towards Shoreditch High Street and listen to tales of the East End’s former glory: ruled by the Kray gangsters and replete with pie shops and jellied eel stands, the former East End has all but disappeared.
Wander along Brick Lane, home to a distinct mix of curry houses and vintage clothes shops, and admire the area’s cultural melting pot. Discover the origins of Cockney rhyming slang and hear chilling tales of Jack the Ripper before capturing photographs of street art from iconic figures such as Banksy and Shepard Fairey.
Before bidding your guide farewell, you'll receive recommendations on how to spend your time in the area. Your tour concludes at Shoreditch High Street station.
