Walking tour of 1,000 years of English Jewish history

5 August 2021

Now the world is opening up again, Norwood supporter Ian Fagelson, a historian, lawyer and official City of London and Westminster tour guide, is offering a real life version of his hugely popular London Jewish History tour on Bank Holiday Monday (30th August) at 11.00 am.

Ian, who has received almost 250 five-star reviews on TripAdvisor for his tours, will take you on a journey through the streets and alleys of London to discover the thousand year-long history of the Jews in England. From the arrival of a Jewish community from Normandy in 1066/67 to the Kindertransport children of 1938/39, Jews have played important roles in the unfolding drama of British history.

On your journey, not only will you get to visit some of the most spectacular sites in the City and famous landmarks, you will also encounter the Jews of mediaeval London, the unfortunate Jewish doctor who inspired the creation of Shylock, Queen Victoria’s favourite Prime Minister, the Jewish stockbroker who saved the British economy during the 1745 Jacobite rebellion, the Protestant rabble-rouser who became an Orthodox Jew, the Jewish prize-fighter who transformed the sport of boxing and other colourful characters.

Ian is inviting participants to donate with all proceeds going to Norwood and World Jewish Relief.
