Vladimir Lenin was one of several Russian revolutionaries who settled temporarily in London as a political exile. From the early 1880s, the East End was also home to large numbers of Jews who fled the Tsarist Russian Empire. Latvian revolutionaries hit the news when they were holed up in a dramatic siege in Sidney Street, Whitechapel. This walk takes you through the dramatic stories of these people and events.
