NEW FOR LONDON WALKS – ‘Stokey: A Misty Village’. One of Rachel’s most popular tours is now in the London Walks repertoire. Its debut on Saturday 7th November was very wet but we had a good time and it will RETURN in the spring. Thank you everyone who braved the non-stop rain.
SOLD OUT! ‘Baskets, Bananas, Bags and Brushes: Spitalfields Market’ – Sunday 13th December.
SOLD OUT! ‘Women’s London: The Untold History’ and ‘Jewish Mayfair’
‘BEHIND THE TERMINI’ is returning in the new year. Full details and dates will be at PUBLIC TOURS. The first tour on the new timetable is ‘All Change at King’s Cross’, on Sunday 3rd January 2016.
‘SUFFRAGETTE’ – the film everyone is talking about. Follow in the footsteps of the REAL EVENTS on Rachel’s popular tours which salute the work of those women who campaigned and suffered in the cause of women’s suffrage. Plan a few hours with your friends and colleagues and book your private tour of ‘Wonderful Women of Westminster‘ or the ‘Battling Belles of Bow’ and hear the stories of Emmeline Pankhurst and her daughters Christabel and Sylvia and their supporters including the Pethwick-Lawrences, Emily Davison, Mary Richardson and the working women of the East End, the moderate campaigners led by Millicent Fawcett and the men who also supported the cause.
Contact Rachel for more details and how to plan your tour.
Don’t forget you can recognise several London locations in the film including Princelet Street which features on her ‘Wonderful Women of Whitechapel’ tour and many others – here is when I spotted Carey Mulligan being filmed.
VINTAGE GLAMOUR in the East End by Michael Greisman profiles wedding photos taken by Boris Bennett and continues to attract lots of attention. Take a look at the WEBSITE. Michael has a NEW project underway now – see the Go Jewish London page for more details.
