Mile End Road

Head down the ancient route of Mile End Road, uncovering stories from the East End

PRICE: £18 / £15

A stroll down the Mile End Road reveals the richness of the area’s history. We will come across memorials to members of a radical political East End family, the site where a prime mover of the Arts and Crafts movement taught handicrafts, and a Georgian Square whose elegant facades hid the home of a respectable man turned murderer. We’ll pass through the park where the Men of Essex camped during the Peasants’ Revolt, and end at the magnificent Grade II listed People’s Palace.

Start: Bow Road Tube Station

End: People’s Palace, near Stepney Green Tube Station
