August 28th: Hoxton & Old Nichol
August 28 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pmFree
Within a mile of Liverpool Street Station, this area is seldom visited by casual tourists but historians know it well through associations with Daniel Defoe, John Bunyan, William Blake and Charles Booth. You will see the John Wesley Chapel, the home of Methodism. Hoxton has links with the music hall era and Shakespeare. Talented artists and designers, smart restaurants and computer software companies are close to the Boundary Estate, once known as Old Nichol and one of the worst Victorian slums with a grim reputation for crime, disease and grinding poverty.
