This tour explores the lives of the Black Georgians, from freedom fighters and veterans to writers and boxers. 

The Georgian era (1714-1837) was one of rapid change and growth for London. It saw the advent of the Industrial Revolution and exponential growth in colonial trade, including the slave trade.

It was an age of public executions, riot and gin addiction. It was the London of Jane Austen, Isaac Newton and William Hogarth.

It was also the London of Bill Richmond, Mary Prince and Dido Belle: these are just some of the names of the thousands of Black people who were part and parcel of everyday life in the chaotic and changing world of Georgian London. On this tour we’ll trace their steps in the British capital, discovering their lives, experiences and achievements.
