About the event

This 2 hour walking tour explores real life and film locations associated with London’s criminal underworld.

Onscreen hard man, actor Stephen Marcus, best known for his role as Nick the Greek in gangster film Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, guides this tour around the infamous Kray twin’s stamping ground.

The tour goes to the Blind Beggar pub; Repton Boys Club and other locations which played a pivotal role in the lives of the Krays and other gangsters and which turned them from mere gangsters into celebrity icons.

Through his role as an onscreen gangster, Stephen has rubbed shoulders with some of London’s ex-gangsters and their associates, including Freddie Foreman, Dave Courtney, Barbara Windsor and gangster turned actor Lenny McLean.

On this tour Stephen retells first hand accounts of crimes from some of London’s most notorious criminals, and provides insight into what it’s really like to be a gangster.
