Hugenot, German, Irish, Jewish, Swedish East End Walk

This walk shows you the East End of 18th and 19th century immigration. Still here today are beautiful Hugenot silkweavers houses; German churches and schools; Irish churches and engineering; Jewish synagogues, shops and soup kitchens; Swedish place names. And a building that was once a French church, then a synagogue and is now a mosque. It could only be in the most cosmopolitan melting pot of them all, the East End of London.

Start Shoreditch High Street overground station
Finish Shadwell station
Shorter walk option – finish Aldgate East or Tower Gateway stations
