Bethnal Green to Brick Lane

Wealthy merchants and silk weavers used to live around this village green. See Bethnal Green's Tudor house and some fine Georgian terraces and churches too. Now, it's not the mulberry trees and manor house which catch our eye, but the Museum of Childhood. Don't be misled by such innocence - beneath lurk tales of public execution, fascist marches, Blitz tragedies and gang murder.
