The East End is one of London’s most fascinating and dynamic distrtcts .It is essentially the story of immigration, wave after wave of people coming to London to seek refuge and looking for a better life. This virtual tour tells their story. Using powerful images, videos and google street view, our journey takes us from the arrival of the French Hugenots in 1680’s through to the late 1930’s and nearly 10,000 mainly Jewish children who arrived at Liverpool Street Station having been secretly evacuated out of Nazi occupied Europe before the outbreak of WW2
