Where to find it

Cable Street, London, E1 0BL

If arriving by Dockland Light Railway, turn left at the bottom of the escalators to exit the station onto Watney Street, passing Shadwell Overground Station on the left, to the junction with Cable Street. If arriving by London Overground, exit directly onto Cable Street. Turn right and head 150 yards west to St George's Town Hall. Turn left just past the Town Hall to enter St. George's Churchyard (now a park) - the mural will be on your left, on the west elevation of the Town Hall.
