Poverty London Tour - Across London

Poverty tourism that is literally that – this tour is shaped around Victorian reformist Charles Booths’ ‘poverty maps’, which illustrated the parts of the city that were full of the undesirables in the area now comprising zones 1 and 2.

His maps used colour coding to delineate the streets’ class make-up – black was for the ‘lowest class’ who were mostly ‘vicious’ and/or ‘criminal’, for example.

Guide Sean Patterson runs two walks through London’s socio-economic past, taking you around Deptford and Clerkenwell. 

£15, dates and times vary 
4 Tanners Hill, SE8 4QD; 
St John’s Square, EC1V
