Ce vei face

This is an exclusive experience for a maximum of 6 guests. This walk covers almost a thousand years of Jewish history. From the arrival of a Jewish community from Normandy in 1066/67 to the Kindertransport children of 1938/39, Jews have played important roles in the unfolding drama of British history. On our journey from Bank to Liverpool Street we will encounter the Jews of mediaeval London, the unfortunate Jewish doctor who inspired the creation of Shylock, Queen Victoria’s favourite Prime Minister, the Jewish stockbroker who saved the British economy during the 1745 Jacobite rising, the Protestant rabble-rouser who became an Orthodox Jew, the Jewish prizefighter who transformed the sport of boxing and other colourful characters. We will visit some of the most spectacular sites in the City. We will also reveal the little-known Jewish associations of some of London's most famous landmarks. This tour is designed as an interactive experience, so feel free to ask questions or add your own insights and information.

A very interesting take on the “Jewish London tour”. I saw lots of things I was completely unaware of. Very different to the usual East end tour.

An entertaining and enlightening trip with a knowledgeable and committed host. Every minute of the tour, I learned something new about England, and Jewish history

A truly fantastic, one-of-a-kind tour. Ian is extremely knowledgeable not only about Jewish history in London but all facets of British history and London geography. Almost every story was one that, as Americans, we were unfamiliar with and fascinated by. The Jewish experience in England is quite different from that in most other lands, so there's a lot to learn. Bonus: Ian may ask you to act out the famous "Prick us, do we not bleed?" scene from Merchant of Venice. Your chance to ham it up!

Ian is a very knowledgeable and competent tour guide. His passion for the subject is matched by his knowledge of it. In addition, he was very helpful and generous to us, as first time visitors, in answering questions and offering tips for our visit. These included things well outside the subject and location of the tour.

A wonderful experience in the city I live in. Ian was a delightful tour guide, very knowledgable, curious and funny. I think I failed all the quiz questions Ian had for me but I learnt a lot about the Jewish history of London and Europe. Recommend it to anyone who is curious & loves to learn new things.
