Join Blue Badge guide Rachel Kolsky to explore the area between The Photographers’ Gallery and the Jewish Museum London in celebration of the joint Roman Vishniac Rediscovered exhibition.
From medical philanthropy to the iconic BT Tower you will discover London’s knowledge quarter, a building that is all ‘dolled up’, an historic furniture store and the classic Ampthill Estate before entering Camden’s original artists colony, guarded by the Black Cats of Carreras.
This walk begins at The Photographers’ Gallery.
The Photographers’ Gallery opens at 11am on Sunday and offers free entry before midday. This allows you 30 minutes to look around before the walk commences at 11.30am. The Jewish Museum is offering up to one month free entry to ‘Roman Vishniac Rediscovered’ upon presentation of your booking confirmation.
With a title inspired by the Eyshes Chayil prayer, discover the stories Jewish and non-Jewish women alike who made an impact on the Jewish community of the East End in this walking tour of Whitechapel and Spitalfields
Camden, Amy's spiritual home, was once a center for transport, the ice trade, and piano making. Later, Camden Lock became the home of 'urban grunge' and music poured out of the pubs and converted warehouses. It is an area full of contrasts and this tour profiles Camden's musical heritage from Pink Floyd to Oh Calcutta and Madness to MTV and ends at the Jewish Museum London.
Discover the streets where fact has often merged with fiction. From 'The Children of the Ghetto' to 'The People of the Abyss' and 'Chicken Soup', the streets of the Jewish East End in and around Brick Lane have inspired Jewish and non-Jewish writers throughout the centuries to the present day
