Markets, Bells And Weathervanes: A Wander Through Whitechapel

Due to its location close to the docks, Whitechapel has always been a multicultural area, first housing a large part of the London Jewish community, and more recently becoming popular with the British Bangladeshi community. The Royal London Hospital is probably the most famous landmark of the area, its large blue building home to the London Air Ambulance helicopter pad.
