Tour Accessibility

We want to make www.thejewsoflondon.com and our walking tour as accessible as possible. If you have any difficulties using the website or have any questions about the tour itself, please contact us using the form here.

  • Please note that the geographical location of Stop 1 ("Genése or Genesis: origins of the Jews in England"), is a first floor location within the Barbican complex, accessible by stairs only. For those with mobility difficulties, it is recommended that you use Google Street View or another online map viewer, rather than visit this stop in person.

  • The recommended route to Stop 6 ("Diamonds and disputes: the meaning of ‘community’") may not be suitable for people in wheelchairs. An alternative route is:

Cross Leadenhall Street so you are over the road from the church: the nearest pedestrian crossing is to the east, towards Aldgate Pump. Travelling from Aldgate Pump, head back down Leadenhall Street and turn left at Billiter Street, which leads to Fenchurch Street. At Fenchurch Street, slightly to the left of the exit from Billiter Street is a pedestrian crossing with traffic lights. Cross Fenchurch Street here. Turn left and then immediately right, down (pedestrianised) London Street, between two skyscrapers. This opens out into the courtyard outside Fenchurch Street railway station. Looking towards the station, a little back from Fenchurch Place (the road in front of the station), in the no-longer-extant Magpie Alley, is where the Hambro Synagogue was situated for almost 170 years between 1725 and 1893.
