Discover the streets where fact has often merged with fiction in this walk led by our popular Blue Badge guide Rachel Kolsky.
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. Included are short passages from writing by, amongst others, Israel Zangwill, Jack London, Arnold Wesker and Emmanuel Litvinoff.

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.
