East End Walking Tour

For when you want to get in touch with your inner Cockney!

London East End Walking Tour

If you’ve seen all the traditional tourist attractions, grown bored of Big Ben, have no desire to see the Shard, and fancy a little more grit to go with the glitz and glamour of London, then look no further! The East End Tour is for those who want to really delve into the heart of the capital.

 

Previously a haven for gangsters and criminals alike, rife with poverty and disease, the East End has become one of the most illustrious and trendy places to visit on your trip to London. With a huge array of high end fashion boutiques and gorgeous cuisine (the curry houses are to die for; especially if you pick one that’s too spicy!), a burgeoning street art culture taking place all around you, as well as a rich and fascinating history make the location as essential a visit as the obvious tourist attractions.

Important information: You can save yourself a bit of money by booking online prior to your tour; £10 online, £12 if buying in person on the day. There’s no need to print your ticket as long as you’re capable of presenting an email confirmation on a smartphone/tablet etc.

Availability: The tour starts at 11am seven days a week and takes around two hours to complete.

Cancellation policy: No refunds available.

Children: For children between the ages of 6 and 15 tickets are £8/£10 (again, depending on when bought), so plenty of value for money even for the older kids.

How to get there: The tour departs from just outside Liverpool Street Station at the Children’s Statue (at the top of the stairs opposite platforms 3 and 4 and very near McDonald’s). Four Underground lines serve the station: Circle, Hammersmith & City, Metropolitan and Central. When arriving at the location, look for your guides: they’ll be wearing orange t-shirts and carrying orange umbrellas, so should be very hard to miss!
