From 1685 Huguenots fled persecution to London many settling in Spitalfields where they worked as silk weavers. These were to be followed by Jews and later Bengalis. In the 1880s the district became notorious as Jack the Ripper's victims were found in its back streets. A hundred years after this Broad Street Station closed to be replaced with the large scale Broadgate complex. Most recently some of the former market buildings have been replaced by the Bishop's Square development of Foster & Partners.


There are numerous refreshment places. Choice may be limited at weekends.
