Joolz Guides: Jolly Spiffing Tour of East London – Hoxton and Shoreditch

24/07/2019

Another of these fun, quirky videos

One of the many reasons I like these videos is that he visits so many places I used to know years ago. It is incredibly nostalgic and fun.

 

A most jolly spiffing tour with Joolz around Old Street, Shoreditch and Hoxton.
If you want to experience true, traditional east end food don’t forget to go to F. Cooke in Hoxton Street. You can have pie and mash but I went for jellied eels.

The tour is actually more one of London History. This one starts at Bunhill Cemetery which has many famous people buried there.
Then, opposite is John Wesley’s house, the father of methodism and a beautifully preserved Victorian lavatory.
Then off to see the first of Shakespeare’s playhouses in London in Curtain road.

We pass through Hoxton Square and Hoxton Hall, one of two remaining Victorian music halls in London.
Opposite Hoxton Hall is the Monster Supplies shop where you can write a letter to a monster.
