Description

With stop for coffee and cake at 'Violet' where there is also a baby change. Please bring a packed lunch if you want anything more substantial.

'Bring Your Baby' Guided London Walks are sensitively devised to suit parents and carers of even the tiniest babies to enjoy London’s history. We can stop whenever you like to feed and change - without the stress of feeling you are holding up the group.

This walk is written and guided by City of London trained guide Sue Doe, co-writer of the best-selling 'Women from Hackney's History' (2021), which has just sold out its print run and is due to be reprinted this year.

The Dalston women prove that women really can do anything – politicians, entertainers, club owners, radical feminists, campaigners, racing drivers, war heroes, anti fascist fighters – all here, and more. On this walk you will hear the stories of these women and groups:
- Doreen Raddon, co-founder of The Four Aces club
- Anna Sewell, Black Beauty writer
- Marie Lloyd, music hall star
- Clara Ludski, founder of The Rio Cinema
- The 43 Group, who fought Oswald Mosley and his fascists on Ridley Road
- Cherie Blair, barrister (and wife of Tony...)
- Mo Mowlam, politician
- Claire Ptak, American baker and founder of Violet where we shall stop!
- Lansdowne Road squats
- Sarah Flower-Adams, hymn-writer who wrote Nearer, My God, To Thee, said to have been played by the musicians as The Titanic sank
- Isabella Banks, author of The Manchester Man
- The Lenthall Road Print Shop
- The German Hospital, visited by Florence Nightingale
- Dorothy Levitt, pioneering 1920s racing car driver
- Hetty Bower, political activist and suffragette
- Florence Benoy, The Women’s Auxiliary Army Corps (WAAC) 'worker', who lost her life during WW1
