In collaboration with the Survey of London, the IHR is running a guided walk around Whitechapel focussing on places of worship, immigration and personal memories drawn from our oral histories.

Walk through layers of social history, visiting the sites of former German sugar refineries, an 18th-century German Lutheran Church and 20th-century German Catholic church, the park where St Mary Matfelon (the 'white chapel') once stood, the East London Mosque, former workhouses, the Royal London Hospital and the variety of buildings across its estate, amongst other diverse and fascinating places.


Tickets are £3.00 per person and can be purchased through the Survey of London event page
