Description

Stroll the mean streets of the East End on this tour that gives you an inside look at the criminal underbelly of London. Led by actor Vas Blackwood, known for playing cannabis dealer Rory Breaker in Lock, Stock, and 2 Smoking Barrels, see the sites of real-life gangster events and learn the fascinating stories behind the legends.

Meet Vas at The Blind Beggar pub in Whitechapel, a watering hole that's been around since 1894. Listen as he regales you with tales of the Kray twins, brothers who became the foremost perpetrators of organised crime in the city in the 1950 and 60s. See the very spot where Ronnie Kray shot and killed his rival George Cornell, earning himself life in prison.

As you travel towards the Repton Boys Club, the legendary boxing club where the Krays once fought, hear more stories of the arson, robbery, extortion, and murder that made the twins so infamous. Along the way, learn of the many killings of convicted criminals Freddie Foreman and Frankie Fraser, and see actual locations used to create the gritty feel of crime films like Face and Gangster No. 1.

Your tour ends at a pub in Shoreditch, where you can order a drink, enjoy a Q&A with Vas, and gain behind-the-scenes knowledge of the filming of Lock, Stock.

My husband and I really enjoyed this tour. Vas was very informative and funny. There was never a dull moment and the walking tour covered a lot of ground. We would highly recommend this tour.
