It was almost the worst possible weather for this kind of event, but even so, it was really worth going to. The guy who was leading the walk is involved with the Spitalfields Life blog, which is a great read if you don’t know it.
I have to say that the walk did bring Dickens to life in his native Shadwell and Limehouse, and despite the poor weather I did enjoy the walk. I might even do another one at some point in the future, although I might wait for better weather next time.
It also made me realise just how much of London I don’t know at all.
