On this tour we follow the trail of London's Jewish community from the 17th century through to the 20th century while discovering the fascinating area of Spitalfields and Whitechapel, or further afield. This community has moved on but the memories linger on in many historic buildings. Learn about Jewish personalities who grew up here in poverty but moved on to become successful artists, writers and entertainers. Markets, an old soup kitchen, synagogue buildings and some of the best preserved examples of Georgian domestic architecture feature on this tour.
