Step into a hidden side of the capital city with this self-guided audio tour and unravel the intricate heritage of the Russian diaspora in London. Perfect for history enthusiasts and cultural explorers, this journey leads you through the lesser-known enclaves where Russian influence has left an indelible mark on the city's cultural fabric. Starting at the Russian Orthodox Cathedral of the Dormition, the route winds through London’s backstreets and squares to the original site of the UK’s first Russian Orthodox Church. Along the way, discover awe-inspiring architecture, centuries-old clubs, and anecdotes of Russian émigrés that shaped the London we know today. Your path ends within the tucked away alley of Exchange Court, the cradle of Russian Orthodoxy in Britain. Memorable highlights include gazing at the architectural beauty of William Walcot’s house, reflecting on the Crimean War at the Guards Memorial, and indulging in the stories of Russian literary giants. This tour isn’t just a walk; it's a voyage through time and heritage, offering a glimpse into the lives and legacy of Russians in London.
