What we’ll do

We will walk around Aldgate on the Eastern side of the City of London and stop at the many apparently anonymous sites where big and small things have happened throughout 2000 years of history, from the invisible underground station to the micro forests on a wall, the patron Saint of travel, the Norwegian connection, the first department store, delusional urban planning, and a Rothschild…

What to bring

Photographic equipment, comfy shoes and be ready for London weather!

Where you'll be

We will rediscover the grass-covered remains of old Aldgate East Station, then proceed counterclockwise around Jack the Ripper's places like St Botolph's Church stopping along the way to experience the local invisible history. Through the disappeared Auld Gate, the first modern department store, the tasty Aldgate pump, onwards by the Friars' Mystery to the formerly beautiful America Square and St Olave's, to end in Trinity Square.
