Walking Whitechapel

Posted by Shahed Saleem on Sept. 20, 2016

Thank you to all of you who came on our first Histories of Whitechapel walk last Saturday, organised through the Whitechapel Gallery. We enjoyed meeting and talking with so many interesting people with diverse associations with the area.

The walk started at the Whitechapel Gallery, crossed over to Altab Ali Park, into St Boniface German RC Church where the priest gave us a fantastic summary of its history, then into the East London Mosque to see the prayer hall and watch the beekeepers tending the hives on the roof, over to the Royal London Hospital before cutting down to Commercial Road, Wellclose Square and finishing at Wilton's Music Hall, stopping at some key buildings en route. 

If you have any ideas for our next walk, or would like to help lead one, please do get in touch
