What you'll do

This experience was listed in Conde Nast Traveller, as one of the best walks in London 2018. Walk with me through hundreds of years of the African presence and contribution to London’s way of life. I’ll show you secret buildings and alleyways, with hidden connections to Africa and the Caribbean in ways which the owners do not want you to know. You’ll hear about Black British Civil Rights, Black Loyalists, and African Revolutionaries. We’ll uncover and understand the historic links between racism, slavery, trade, religion, and politics - which are still evident in the streets and buildings of London. We'll pass by the British Museum, where we'll see beautiful African objects which many consider to be stolen, and end the experience at Tottenham Court Road with Oxford Street.
