Boxing, The Blitz And Beyond: Bethnal Green

8 November, 2021 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm


Following a rapid decline from a green and pleasant residential area to one of London’s poorest neighbourhoods, Bethnal Green is experiencing a renaissance. Explore with our Blue badge guide, Rachel Kolsky, its quiet backstreets to discover the origins of ‘barmy, the home of 18th century Jewish boxing champion Daniel Mendoza, the glorious art deco splendour of the old Town Hall, a private war memorial, the Stairway to Heaven remembering a 1945 war tragedy, the People’s Park and more. Ending at the Museum of Childhood, this tour really does have it all! Lasts around 2 hours.

Meeting point to be communicated by the Activity Leader nearer to the date.
