À propos de votre hôte

I'm a writer, artist, storyteller, and history enthusiast and I’ve been living in East London for 15 years. Being an immigrant myself, the stories of those coming to London through the ages in search of their fortune have always intrigued me. It's a story that continues today and it's one I want to share with you. Hopefully it will make you fall in love with this city as I did.

Au programme

Hiding in the back alleys and graffiti-covered streets of London's trendy Shoreditch district are 700 hundred years of history waiting to be explored. We’ll visit the site of England’s first mental health hospital, founded in 1247, discover why French Huguenots made London their home in 1685, and relive the horrors of Jack the Ripper in 1888. We’ll grab a bite to eat at a 120-year-old bagel shop…
