Here you can go on a mini guided tour and hear about British history, including beheadings that occurred in the Tower. This is also where the Queen's Jewels are displayed. Fact - The Tower of London, officially Her Majesty's Royal Palace and Fortress of the Tower of London, is a historic castle located on the north bank of the River Thames in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. It was founded towards the end of 1066 as part of the Norman Conquest of England. The White Tower, which gives the entire castle its name, was built by William the Conqueror in 1078 and was a resented symbol of oppression, inflicted upon London by the new ruling elite. The castle was used as a prison from 1100 (Ranulf Flambard) until 1952 (Kray twins),[3] although that was not its primary purpose.

Chatsworth Road Market runs every Sunday from 11am to 4pm. Fact - in its heyday (circa 1930s) Chatsworth Road market is reported to have had up to 200 stalls running 4‐5 days a week, extending along the full length of the street. The number of stalls and market days decreased slowly in post‐war years until the market eventually closed around 1990. After many years of campaigning by local residents and traders, the market returned in 2010 and has been running weekly since June 2011. The market is established as a regular Sunday market used by local people and is continuing to grow, providing a place to shop, meet friends or entertain the kids.

If you love sampling different types of food international, farm produce etc. hustle and bustle with buskers thrown in for good measure then this is the place to be on Saturdays. Fact - Before the late 20th century it was the site of a busy fruit and vegetable market, but this slowly dwindled over time - in the early 2000s, market activity was limited to a couple of stands selling produce. On 8 May 2004 a food market was launched on Saturdays which has since become firmly established. Broadway Market is closed to traffic when the market is being held (9am - 5pm). Thanks largely to the market a number of new restaurants and boutiques have opened in the area.

I would recommend you visit this beautiful Cathedral, where Princess Diana and Charles were married. Fact - The cathedral is one of the most famous and most recognisable sights of London. Its dome, framed by the spires of Wren's City churches, has dominated the skyline for over 300 years. At 365 feet (111 m) high, it was the tallest building in London from 1710 to 1967. The dome is among the highest in the world. St Paul's is the second largest church building in the United Kingdom after Liverpool Cathedral.

This is a great pub for meeting local folks. It is also well known as a stopping place for boaters. This lovely old pub is situated where Lea Bridge Road meets the River Lea, welcoming commuters, travellers and lorries from Leyton, Walthamstow and beyond. A few years ago The Princess got a makeover and is a welcome respite from the frantic traffic of the nearby road. At the heart of the pub is a stove fire which is rare in London pubs now. There is a terrace facing the canal and picnic tables out by the towpath, making it an ideal summer watering hole. But don't take my word for it, come and enjoy for yourselves.
