On this ride we'll be exploring some of the curious traces this oriental tide has left on London's architecture.
We'll be looking at eastern and middle-eastern influences on buildings ranging from temples and mosques to cigarette factories, cinemas and suburban villas.
We're beginning with a tour of the Shri Swaminarayan Mandir, the great Hindu temple in Neasden, which means a slightly earlier start than most of our rides, as we need to get there in time for a 10.30 tour.
Meet Euston station, by the ticket office on the left-hand side of the concourse, 9.40am, to get the 9.57 train to Harlesden, arrive 10.13. (It's a Watford Junction-bound train). Bring Oyster cards, or buy a train ticket.
After the temple visit, we'll travel back by train to Kilburn High Road to continue the ride.
Finish - near Covent Garden c 4.30.
Dress - For the visit to the Mandir, there are some dress requirements - so no exposed midriffs, nothing see-through, and no shorts or skirts above the knee - though sarongs can be provided.
