Fairtrade London History Walk

Join us on a history walk like no other. We will follow the story of three important commodities – coffee, tea and sugar – whose history is intertwined with London’s past, present and future as a global trading centre.

The transatlantic slave trade is a central part of the story, and links to the modern day inequalities that blight the trade in tropical commodities, and are finally beginning to be tackled by Fairtrade supply chains.

This is a 2-3 hour walk, with opportunities for refreshments along the way. Meet at 2.50pm by the big ship in Hays Galleria near London Bridge.
