We actually stumbled across this one day en route somewhere else, but it had always been on our list to visit. An important memorial to the battle of cable street and an important visual reminder of London's socialist history.

Great history place of people standing up against fascism and racism in the 1930s. I love what it tells you about people of London saying no, when the authorities said yes, and the fascists said "heil Hitler"!
