"When a man is tired of London he should be glad he doesn't live in Croydon."




Taking history by surprise!

Creators of guided journeys and theatrical events In the East End of London for over two decades.

"Backpassage Walks are a hilarious alternative to the normal blue badge tours around East London, whilst remaining historically accurate and extremely informative. Alan Gilbey is the real thing, a genuine Eastender who knows his material intimately and an extraordinary performer and writer. I cannot recommend his walks too highly."

Rachel Lichtenstein, author of 'Diamond Street', 'On Brick Lane' and 'Rodinski's Room' with Iain Sinclair.

"A tour de farce…would make any music hall audience groan with laughter…the cool alternative option." - The Independent

 "Sharp and informative…unique." - The Guardian
