We often feel that Whitechapel has been hard done by with the Ripper walks. It's got so much more than that - this lively high street holds some historic gems, some of which left a huge legacy on our nation: it was the place where Londoners fought on the streets to say no to Fascism; the home of our very own Al Capones, the Krays; thesad story of the so called Elephant man and his shop; the scene of a crazy gun fight which involved Winston Churchill complete with pistol and top hat; the place where Lenin and Trotsky met to shape the events of the world history.
We'll even tell you where you can eat a top curry for which the area is world famous.
This really is it, history on a high street, told in under two hours, earthy, real, told by locals and very, very London (and there's not a Ripper body in sight).
