London Episode 16 The East End and the docks

The historical and the hipster

A tour of East London, in search of the Old East End and the area’s Jewish and multi-ethnic roots. A little history, ideas for places to visit and some literary inspiration to inform your tour. Before leaving, we pop over to the docks and the London Docklands Museum.
