This Funzing Experience:
Hidden between Canary Wharf, and Stratford, a 'secret' London exists.. This walking tour explores the history, culture, and the remnants of the popular pleasures of the old working class communities Plaistow in a time of change and regeneration. In the unassuming back-streets of East London, a treasure trove of history awaits...

Discover Victorian London.. Lost Pubs and ghost signs.. Discover bombsites from the Blitz.. Explore the heritage of West Ham United FC.. Take a break in one of East London's legendary pubs, with its own rich heritage. End with a traditional East London Pie & Mash!..

Walk on top of one of London's great engineering feats.. Discover traces of an ancient village hidden in the urban sprawl.. Discover one of London's largest food markets, and meet characters like Dick Turpin, Anne Boleyn, The Human League and the £1 fish man along the way!

This walk will suit anyone interested in hidden London, London History, ghostsigns, lost pubs, football history, the Industrial Revolution, the Blitz, and social change.

The walk takes approximately 2.5 hours, though Dan never rushes - it takes as long as it takes, and if you fancy it, will end with a traditional East London Pie & Mash lunch!

Remember to dress for the weather and wear shoes you know you'll be comfortable walking in for a couple of hours.
