Liverpool Street Tube, Bishopsgate exit | Map
Guided by Sue
Let's hear it for Immigrants' London. London was founded by immigrants. It's always been peopled by immigrants. Much of its greatness – let alone its buzz, its excitement, its astonishing bouquet of cultural, artistic, historical, linguistic, and, yes, culinary flavours – is attributable to its being a City of Immigrants. It's a City of the Past in that regard. And it's also very much the City of the Future in that regard. London's the most ethnically diverse city in the world. And it works. Everybody rubs along together. People are what they are – this is the rainbow city. But they're also, sooner or later, all Londoners. It's part of the alchemy, part of the magic of London, that. This walk explores all of that. The whys? The wheres? The whens? The hows? The whos? The significance. Not just what it portends – but what's to be admired and celebrated and indeed learned from that arguably richest strand of all in the London tapestry. N.B. the walk takes about two hours and ends at Aldgate Tube.
In the Summer 2019 London Walks programme the Great Melting Pot – Immigrants' London walk takes place at 2.30 pm on Sunday, September 8.
