Explore the Excellence of Ratcliff
Ratcliff is located in the central part of London, within the London Borough of Tower Hamlets, and just south of the district of Stepney. It was a former hamlet once famous for its shipbuilding, with a huge population for a village (about 3,500 residents) in the 17th century. This is where one of the largest London disasters during the Second World War took place – the Ratcliff Fire. Here you can see the Ratcliff Church, where all the refugees went during and following the disaster. Here you can also visit the Ratcliff Highway, infamous for the murders that took place there.
