Ever wondered what makes a house Georgian? Or why Soho is so gay?
As part of Historic England's Keep it London campaign, we're keeping the history of London's neighbourhoods alive with a series of walks. Stroll along some of London's best stories and have them brought to life with photos, archive images and sometimes the odd video. We'll also help you identify architectural periods and understand what makes them different.
Download the app to find out about Brixton’s Windrush Generation, the Battle of Cable Street, 130 years of Queer Soho, Post-War architecture in The City, the rise of the railways in Camden and more!
Note: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. We advise you to quit the app when finished.
This update includes fixes, performance improvements and support for iPhone X.

Wonderful app for those interested in local history. Superb update of an earlier Ealing walk devised by an eminent local historian. I look forward to future releases with other walks.
