Learn about London’s most notorious gangsters, Ronnie and Reggie Kray, on this unique guided walking tour around London’s East End. The tour uncovers the real story of the Kray twins’ rise to power, the numerous police attempts to bring them to justice, the turf wars with the infamous Richardson gang and their eventual downfall.
From the Blackmore Vale area we take you directly to The Duke of Somerset which is a hidden gem of a pub in the city on London, with a large external beer garden if the weather is good. The pub also boasts a decadent decor where you will enjoy your 2 course lunch before commencing on your walking tour.
We will step onto the streets of East London with our Blue Badge Guide where you will hear about the Kray Twins, the most notorious criminals of the 1960’s, heading an organised underworld empire of protection rackets, violence and murder. The twins were deeply embedded within the post-war London underworld and were Kingpins of organised crime, feared for their enforcement of protection rackets, armed robberies, arson attacks and murders, notably the famous dispatching of George Cornell and Jack “The Hat” McVite. They were also celebrities, Swinging Sixties nightclub owners, who courted Hollywood stars like Judy Garland, Frank Sinatra and George Raft and British pin ups such as Diana Dors and Barbara Windsor. They were even photographed by David Bailey. They lived out their darkest dreams of transgressing the social rules that restricted them and who enjoyed the spoils of their own daring, wearing sharp tailored suits and swilling champagne in attractive company with money to burn.
This tour takes you behind the scenes of the Krays – see locations where they have been and where murders have taken place and hear stories about the life of these infamous criminals.
