"Fournier Street" East End of London Tip by TexasDave

East End of London, London: 20 reviews and 43 photos


A short street with quite a lot of history. These houses were built in the 1700's for silk-weaving Huguenots who had fled from France. The notable feature is the large attic windows which allowed plenty of light for the loom workers.
Today is is the center of the Bangladesh community, in fact, the London Jamme Masjid Mosque is just around the corner. It originally was a Huguenot chapel, then a synagogue, and now a mosque.
