Wednesday 8 July, 7pm
Spitalfields is one of London’s most dynamic neighbourhoods, known for its bustling markets and history of immigration. On this tour we’ll be exploring those aspects, but going a little deeper.
Spitalfields is ancient and we’ll be uncovering what remains can be found today as well as looking at the contemporary architecture and social changes happening in the area.
Wednesday 15 July, 7pm
Rebranded as London’s new ‘Knowledge Quarter’ the regeneration of Kings Cross is extraordinary. We’ll be looking at these changes as well as uncovering the hidden historic gems that hint to its seedier and industrial past.
Wednesday 22 July, 7pm
The Docks made London the wealthiest (and most powerful) City in the world. But at what cost? On this tour we’ll look at the rise of the docks and their history as well as the incredible transformation of Canary Wharf as a ‘Wall Street on water”
Wednesday 29 July, 7pm
Never has so much passion, talent and history been crammed into so small an area. We will have a closer look at Soho through time, revealing its dirty secrets, inspiring social history and its colourful communities.

Once you’ve made a booking you will be sent an email confirmation with the link to join the virtual tour. If you book an individual tour you will receive the link for the live tour. If you have booked the full membership you will receive an email with all four tour links. You will also receive a separate email invite to join the private facebook group.
The tours are run via zoom. It’s not necessary to download the programme, you can run it in a browser, but a reasonably fast internet connection would be helpful.
Membership can be purchased any time until the last live tour scheduled on 24 June. Once you’ve booked you will receive an email inviting you to the private facebook group where you can catch up on tours you’ve missed.
Please check your spam folder. If you still don’t have it, email email@example.com quoting your order name and number to request another link.
I’m afraid the live video replays are only available to those who have booked the full membership.
Unfortunately I can’t offer refunds for missed tours. The dates and timings of the tours are listed above and Eventbrite will send you a reminder 48 hours before, 2 hours before and 10 minutes before the tour. Please check you inbox (and spam!) and join the meeting in good time.
