Field Trip Day
Join Field Trip in East London as we explore the most vibrant corner of England’s capital. From Shakespeare to Banksy, mighty heels continue to pound these roads. Walk with us as we follow in their footsteps; from its own Little Shop of Horrors, to its canal backstreets, from its street art and live music, to its local bakehouses and flower markets. You’ll even get to pet a pig on a farm smack bang in the middle of Hackney.
With a legacy of being both bawdy and progressive, a home to nonconformists and artists, weavers and furniture makers, docks, railways and industry, the neighborhoods of East London are many things at once. William the Conqueror held his court on streets that were later waked by Marlowe and Jack the Ripper. Once the heart of the English suffragette movement, residents fled into underground stations while destruction rained from the skies in WWII. East End London is not a picture of history, it is history being written.
Field Trip Day is an afternoon of local discovery, challenges, unique opportunities, and hidden surprises. Armed with theField Trip app and your wits, an afternoon’s adventure will reveal the neighborhood’s secrets from William Blake to bicycle jump courses, from tea to taxidermy.
