If you were fascinated by the TV series this walk puts together two of the episodes. You start in Old Shoreditch to see Arnold Circus, which was shown in the series. You hear you the history of Shoreditch old and new from the Victorian Old Nichol and A Child of the Jago to modern street art, and you even see you a Banksy. And we show you the connections which led Victorian Shoreditch to eventually become trendy 21st century Shoreditch. You also see what was used as Cary Mulligan’s home in the recent film Suffragette. Then you jump on the tube for a few minutes to Bermondsey. Here you see charming Reverdy Road which featured in the TV series. En-route to it you see London’s oldest railway arches and station, a famous old factory and other things from Bermondsey’s history. As well as seeing and hearing all about Reverdy Road you see its two neighbouring roads which are equally characterful. To finish the walk you can simply end back at Bermondsey tube station or can pop into one of the most characterful unchanged Victorian pubs in London. Or of you fancy finishing in trendy Shoreditch you can of course simply do the walk in the opposite direction.
