Criminology students studying Crime and the London Underworld on 'Gangs of Soho' tour

History 10 February 2016

Students on a Gangs of Soho field walk

The ‘Gangs of Soho’ tour is one of two tours scheduled on the SSLC405 Crime and the London Underworld module, along with a further tour about 'The Krays’.

The module leader Mark Cambridge said, "These field walks give students the opportunity to explore crime in the environment in which they study and live. It is also a fantastic opportunity to take the classroom outside and into this vibrant and diverse city of ours".

Students are being asked to provide a reflective report based on either of the two tours.
