Wapping has a long history which dates all the way back to Anglo Saxon times before it even became a part of London's culture. It takes its name from the old word 'wapol', which means marsh. This whole area has been shaped by the river, whether due to great voyages of exploration, heavy Victorian industry and the docks, terrible Dickensian slums that hugged the river, the dreadful destruction of the Blitz, or its modern day resurgence with big business and leisure. You will visit famous old pubs, places of execution and great philanthropy, as well as visiting locations relating to some of the most famous names in history such as Captain Cook, Thomas Jefferson, Martin Frobisher, Sir Walter Raleigh, Charles Dickens, Hanging Judge Jeffers and Captain Bligh. You can see a part of real London that tourists could never find, well away from the bright lights of the West End theaters, museums and palaces.
