  • In Cable Street (the Whitechapel street where ship ropes were once made) this mural was erected in memory of the 1936 battle of the same name. A handful of English fascists, led by Oswald Mosley, intended to march in memory of the fourth year of the founding of the British fascist party, but found opposition from Jews, trade unionists, workers and docks inhabitants who opposed and rejected them. The mural, inspired by the Mexican school, although characteristic, does not in my way have particular artistic prominence and appears, in some respects, quite caricatured (see Hitler's caricature on the right). However, it is worth pausing for a few minutes if you walk around here, certainly not to go there on purpose.

  • Sorry Julian, took us this long to give a review but we didn't have a Google account back then 😁. We stayed in summer of 2017 for three nights where we experienced cleanest, freshest and most comfortable bed in the Queen's land😊. You were very helpful with everything we needed from cabs to good market. Great to stay at a quite little location in a big city like London. We would also like to thank our pleasant stay to the lady that prepared our bed in room 1 and will stay again on our next vacation. Rooftop garden is very neat too for an evening tea, beer or wine.
  • My room was spacious and clean, with a lovely view into the garden. The owner, Julian, could not be more lovely or helpful, both regarding my booking and helping me with directions and transport. The breakfast was really lovely, and I really appreciated the care that had obviously been taken. Will definitely return when I’m next in the area!
