Day 113: Walking tour of Tower Hamlets

Sunday morning we met a tour guide called Andrew who brought us on a walking tour around Tower Hamlets. He knew a huge amount about the sociopolitical context to lots of the 19th & 20th century buildings in the area which was pretty interesting. Unfortunately I’d a severe case of hay fever (maybe it’s Tower Hamlets) which was a bit distracting. Even so, amongst other things we managed to have a look at Lasdun’s cluster block tower and a Lubetkin’s Dorest estate beside Columbia Road, so not a wasted morning.
