On the roads and riverside of Limehouse we will find evidence of its age-old connections with the sea. A truly cosmopolitan area, it was home to London’s first Chinatown. Our walk takes us to the sublime St Anne’s church and Narrow Street’s fine 17th century housefronts, to palatial sailors’ hostels and one of the very oldest urban railway viaducts, taking in splendid river views.
