London Footsteps

Smaller Default Larger


Over the centuries, the City has attracted migrants from countries all over Europe and Asia....Huguenots, Jews, Germans, Irish, Bangladeshis and many others. These groups settled to the East of the City and their religions, languages and culture have survived and flourished. This colourful ethnic mix is the essence of life in Spitalfields which is now an expanding financial and commercial area with fashionable shops and smart restaurants.
