Starting with an espresso at the oldest coffee supplier in London, you’ll set off through the streets of London’s west end to explore the world of shopkeeping, which has a history as long and complex as the city itself.
Ben Leask believes that the best shopkeepers of the world are those who are compelled to tell the public about something they’ve discovered. The shopkeepers and traders that you’ll be introduced to on this Experience are as passionate about their products as they are knowledgeable about the world of shopping and food, and your host - himself a lifelong trader - is no exception.
As you walk through this area of London you’ll hear stories of how London’s traders helped shape the city we know today and learn how these stores and shops are inextricably linked to the communities they reside in and the fabric of the city itself.
Good reads for creatives.
