About the Event

London is a powerhouse. A financial centre, a history of wealth and importance. But where was this status built on? We take a look at how the City of London was implicated in the Transatlantic Slave Trade, and what part it played, in order to secure its own position.

We will be following in the footsteps of some very famous names who were implicit in the slave trade, plus tracing the people who were instrumental in its abolition, plus we see where some of the most famous abolition support documents and images were published. Where was the central hub of the largest international trade at the time? And why is its location rather eyebrow-raising? We will find out all the answers on this tour.
