These groups that settled have left their footprint, and the walk will uncover these, revealing the development of Spitalfields over the centuries.
Drawing on a number of London chroniclers, this walk will be a journey through the architecture and histories of this ever-changing part of the city.
Will I need any equipment or materials?
None, but comfortable walking shoes are advisable, together with clothing appropriate for the weather.
