Over the centuries, from the Huguenot Protestant silk weavers to the Irish Catholics, the Ashkenazi Jews and the Muslim Bengalis of what is now know as ‘Banglatown’,  along with the affluent artists and architects and designers of today, this neighbourhood has seen so many changes, each bringing much mystery and intrigue to this “unique cultural crucible” as Spitalfields has been described.

The historical, culinary and artistic concentration of this part of London along with some very surprising people, has dazzled me and I would like to invite you to share some of the incredible stories and places I have discovered in the last few months. I have really enjoyed designing this brand new city tour for you.
