This walk has been devised specifically for teachers of Whitechapel as a subject, and of course their pupils. This walk is set in the 19th and early 20th centuries. It’s all about the social history: multiculturalism, immigration, redevelopment, docks, crime, policing, poverty, prostitution, overcrowding, reform, press coverage, children, jobs, unemployment, the workhouse. We tailor-make the walk according to the requirements of the class.
Start Whitechapel underground station if coming by public transport, or if coming by coach the corner of Sidney Street and Newark Street
