Lisson Grove to the New West End Synagogue

12 October @ 10:30 am - 1:00 pm

Not so long ago, Notting Hill was defined by slum landlords and as home to a strong Caribbean community, together with a small but vibrant Jewish community (of which Pa Kolsky, father of our guide Rachel, was a member). Take this opportunity to discover its transformation and enjoy a real treat at the end of the tour :the New West End Synagogue, where you will hear the story of the building and its fascinating community, including Rothschilds, Franklins, Montagus and suffragettes. Unfortunately due to Covid 19 , we will not be allowed inside the Synagogue.

PLEASE NOTE: This walk originates outside LADBROKE GROVE Underground Station. The reference in the title to “Lisson Grove” harks back to a time when this area was part of the medieval manor of Lilestone, which stretched a far as Hampstead to the north.
