Walk: London’s Disappearing Victorian East End

Thursday 11 May — Book now
6.30pm to about 8.30pm. This walk, led by Heloise Palin and David Garrard, starts at the Bishopsgate Institute (1894, C Harrison Townsend) and explores the nineteenth and early twentieth century history of this area, just east of the City.

Some buildings, like the former Bishopsgate Railway Station – later Bishopsgate Goods Station (1839-42 and rebuilt 1878) - are now fragments, others like the former Central Foundation School for Girls (1890, T Chatfield Clarke and Son) came perilously close to complete destruction and many are still threatened with redevelopment. Meet in the entrance hall of the Bishopsgate Institute 230 Bishopsgate, London, EC2M 4QH where they have kindly agreed to show us some photos from their collection before we depart. Rail and tube: Liverpool Street. £15. Booking required.*
