We are committed to opening our doors, and sharing our stories and unique, rich heritage with all sections of the community. Many groups arrange private visits. These include school groups and guided walking tours. In addition we participates in Jewish, London and National Heritage Open Days.
The synagogue Members and Volunteers give their time to educate about this pioneering community. Its unique architectural features and their first hand knowledge. Many of our international visitors have found their ancestor’s marriage certificates in the Synagogue. We have records dating back to the 19th century and thanks to the Jewish Genealogy Society -this information has now been digitalised and is available on request.
If you would like to arrange a tour of the Synagogue, as an individual, a family or as a group please do contact us.
We also welcome visitors on Walking tours of London – If you have already booked your tour or are a tour guide looking to add a hidden gem to your groups walk – please do get in touch.
For many years Sandys Row Synagogue has worked closely (but not exclusively) with Rachel Kolsky, a prize winning Blue Badge Guide who has been leading tours around the Jewish East End since 2000. The Jewish community may no longer live in Spitalfields but Rachel’s tour will evoke memories of the synagogues, schools, theatres and soup kitchens not forgetting the street markets and shops. Woven into her wonderful tours your get the full story of other immigrant communities such as the Huguenots and Bengalis who also made the Spitalfields area their home.

We ask all visitors to make a £4.00 donation to the Synagogue to help us cover our running costs and support our restoration project.
