UPDATE 10/09: regulations starting 14 September ("rule of 6") will make the walk on 4 October difficult. We will assess the situation a week beforehand, and if needed, will reschedule the walk.

In 140 minutes a guide will take us through hundreds of years of the African presence and contribution to London’s way of life. We'll discover secret alleyways and enormous buildings all connected to Africa and the Caribbean in ways which the owners do not want us to know.

Find out about Black loyalists and African revolutionaries. Uncover the submerged links between racism, trade, religion, slavery and politics which are still evident in the very streets and buildings of the oldest part of London. This walk features:

  • Ancient African architecture
