A short walk from Shadwell Station. A very effective artwork successfully illustrating the very important stand taken by a vast swathe of people against the fascists. Probably more important than the poll tax riot. An increasing modern relevance in the face of current political uncertainty...More

This mural depicts the clash that took place on the 4th October 1936. Great mural to look at if you are in the area which started in 1976 and finished in 1993 and restored in 2011 due to vandalism and graffiti. It is powerful with...More

We actually stumbled across this one day en route somewhere else, but it had always been on our list to visit. An important memorial to the battle of cable street and an important visual reminder of London's socialist history.

Great history place of people standing up against fascism and racism in the 1930s. I love what it tells you about people of London saying no, when the authorities said yes, and the fascists said "heil Hitler"!

be wowed by the uniquely cosmopolitan flavor of
Whitechapel. Long gone are the days when Jack the
