In a city with such a brutal history, and as many residents below ground as above, is it surprising that there is a ghost or two lurking around almost every corner?
This hunt takes you through one of the most rapidly changing and beautiful parts of the city where old and new jostle constantly for position. It's an area that has inspired writers, artists, poets and architects for centuries and it isn't finished yet! Every metropolis is more than what we see, it's built on stories, superstitions and traditions as much as brick and mortar foundations. This is especially true of London which wears its secret history in the open, if you know where to look.
On the East End hunt you can explore this hidden past, find out how some of the city's most famous icons are based on family folklore, which Egyptian icon is thought to preside over a number of churches in London and how one of London's most contemporary icons was built on an ancient grave, which can still be seen today!
Once you've lost yourself in history, find yourself again in the famous, and very modern, Spitalfields market. A great place to reward your sleuthing with some bargain hunting or a rest at one of the area's many vibrant bars and restaurants.
The questions aren't the only thing that are fiendish in our East End Hunt, as you cross the stomping ground of Jack the Ripper, come face to face with the spectres of the old City and explore the conspiracy theories harboured in the very stones of London.
