Tea’s London Journey
18 November, 2018, 10:00 am - 1:30 pm
Connect directly with the sites of London where tea was forged as the national drink of Britain. Walk through the East End docklands and into the City, guided by tea historians from Queen Mary University of London. The route will follow tea’s journey from the import docks of the East India Company, via London’s forgotten Chinatown in Pennyfields and tea warehouses of the East End, to wholesale and retail sites in the City. Your guides will reveal hidden gems of London’s commercial history by explaining the significance of each major stopping point along the way, and will offer plenty of opportunity to discuss and reflect upon modern Britain’s astonishing relationship with an ancient Chinese drink.
The walk will start at Canning Town Station and will finish at St Paul’s Station. It will cover approximately 3-4 miles across London, including a transfer via Docklands Light Railway at the mid-point of the route.
