Hoxton and Shoreditch – A Revelation

  • Thursday 4 June 2020
  • Old Street Underground Station ticket office
  • Guide: Andrew Davies

Once the centre of the furniture industry, Shoreditch has been transformed into a vibrant hub of galleries, clubs, cafés and street art. We will savour its history from Bunhill Fields cemetery to fine squares, the first theatre, ‘the bells of Shoreditch’ and extraordinary Victorian Arnold Circus – London’s first slum clearance project.


Andrew Davies is an author, broadcaster, The Arts Society and National Trust lecturer. Andrew is the author of nine books including The East End Nobody Knows (unfortunately now out of print). He also runs his own walks and talks company called All About London.
