Take a Walk Through History Phone App (Ealing)

Ever wondered what makes a house Georgian? Or what it would look like if you mixed Brutalism with the Baroque? Perhaps you’re more interested in social history and never knew Soho has been Queer for more than 130 years.

As part of Historic England’s Keep it London campaign, we have brought the history of London’s neighbourhoods to life with our new walking app, pulling in photos, archive images and sometimes the odd video. We’ll also help you identify architectural periods and understand what makes them different. See here.

This app release explores Soho, The City and Ealing. In early autumn we’ll update to include other areas of London. Ealing Civic Society was involved in the development, and sent us the information.

The app is free to download from the Apple Store or Google Play.
