Gangster Tours in London
By Viator, June 2013
While the British papers have long reported on London’s gnarly criminal underworld, the city’s gangster culture was also brought to a world-wide audience in Guy Ritchie’s 1998 hit film Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, which turned the spotlight back on the streets of the East End.
Thankfully, these days it’s safe to venture onto the infamous streets of East London, but who better to escort you through London’s murky past than Stephen Marcus, the actor known for his role as fictional gangster Nick the Greek in Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. Take a Gangster Walking Tour of London’s East End led by Stephen Marcus and you’ll get the insider scoop on London’s real and fictional villains, visiting memorable sights from the film and locations of the city’s most ill-famed real life events like the Blind Beggar pub where Ronnie Kray famously shot dead one of his arch rivals.
