What you'll do

We will explore the backstreets and alleyways of the old East End & see the traces that remain of the Jewish East End. Meet Caroline at Liverpool Street Station and begin your journey with a stroll into the narrow alleyways. Caroline will dish out information on street names, shop signs, and secret places that tell of her family's Sephardi lineage. You’ll then move on to explore a hidden old synagogue. On the way, she’ll show how to read simple Hebrew script and teach you to write your name in Hebrew. After your visit, you’ll head to Caroline’s favourite bagel shop—one of the oldest in London— where you can chow down on a hearty traditional lox or salt beef bagel with the crowds of dedicated locals.
