For those interested in an enthralling side of
London's history ...or wishing to trace family roots
...or simply wanting an entertaining few hours
Join me, Stephen Burstin, on a wonderful journey to discover the fascinating history and rich heritage of London's Jewish community. With a choice of several conducted tours we shall stroll along the alleyways, backstreets and main thoroughfares of some of London's most interesting areas. (All private tours are also available as part walking/part driving - please enquire)
I conduct these tours throughout the year with regular Public tours from just £10 (see public tour dates on Dates, Times & Contact Me page) and reasonably-priced Private tours for individuals and groups. There's a host of varied tours from my Spitalfields and Aldgate tour in London’s famous East End to the enormously entertaining Jewish Heroes and Villains tour. Visitors to London, as well as locals, also delight in my tour London’s Famous Attractions ..with a touch of Jewish flavour - it’s like two tours in one, visiting the city's iconic sites and hearing their fascinating stories including lots of truly incredible Jewish links and anecdotes too! (See the full highlights of each tour by clicking below on My Tours)
On all my tours I recount enthralling tales about people and places, tales that are heartbreaking one moment and heartwarming the next. I will introduce you to some colourful characters from the past and point out numerous sites of great interest …and many of them are little known sites! My tours are entertaining as well as informative and as one former client comments on my Testimonials page: "You don't have to be Jewish to enjoy Stephen's tours".
As a specialist guide of Jewish London with over 25 years experience conducting tours, I will give you an insider's view of Jewish London (past and present) that is not found in any guide book for I delight in sharing my knowledge and enthusiasm, a legacy from my parents who gave me a unique insight into the amazing history of Jewish life in London where I was born.
