A #London Walker Reviews: The Unknown #EastEnd with Harry

Mary, Fiona, Maxine & Noel in the London Walks office write… On Mondays & Fridays we'll be sharing reviews of our London Walks written by London Walkers. Firstly, THANKS to all who have written to us down through the years, your kind words are greatly appreciated! Our guides don't solicit these reviews on our tours – we believe that this would be a waste of your time. That's what makes these reviews all the more special – they have been sent to us by genuine London Walkers who have given up their valuable time to drop us a line or two, or leave a comment on travel message boards & websites. Thanks everyone.

Another 5-star review on TripAdvisor! Huge thanks to CanuckTraveller07 for taking the time to recommend Harry's tour…

We met our guide Harry from London Walks last Sunday afternoon at 2:00 PM at Whitechapel Underground station for "The Unknown East End" walk. Having read and heard so much about the historic East End of London for so many years, it was very enlightening to visit in person and listen to Harry's fascinating tales of such diverse subjects as the Kray Brothers, the Elephant Man, Brick Lane, Spitalfields, the East End Jewish populace, immigration, and the social and ethnic changes that have occurred in the area. Harry is a native of this area and his knowledge and experience certainly reflect this. Harry's tour was totally engaging and informative, and I came away from it having learned a great deal about the fascinating and historic East End of London. What a great way to spend a couple of hours on a Sunday afternoon. Highly recommended.

A London Walk costs £10 – £8 concession. To join a London Walk, simply meet your guide at the designated tube station at the appointed time. Details of all London Walks can be found at
