Knowledge Quarter Private Tour: Picturing Forgotten London at the London Metropolitan Archives

11 October 2018 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am

- Free, Booking Required

 You are invited to an exclusive morning curator tour of the Archive’s new exhibit Picturing Forgotten London. 

Picturing Forgotten London will take you on a journey of discovery through the capital’s past. Meet us at the shot tower next to Waterloo Bridge and travel across the river to The Devil’s Acre, a notorious neighbourhood next to the Palace of Westminster. In the East End we’ll visit the gothic magnificence of Columbia Market in Bethnal Green and encounter London’s first Chinatown in Limehouse. In the west we’ll shop at the Soho Bazaar and ride on the Great Wheel in Earl’s Court, before a night of entertainment at Wyld’s Monster Globe in Leicester Square.

From coaching inns to horse markets, riverside mansions to ragged schools, images created by a wide variety of artists, antiquarians and organisations will appear together for the first time to tell the story of London’s forgotten buildings.

Book tickets here.
