The Hidden History of White City

Header image for Title
  2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Discover how a Hungarian impresario, who'd wowed America with spectacular shows, transformed farmland and brickfields into London’s biggest entertainment and sports venue.

In 1908 Imre Kiralfy realized his dream and built a 140-acre complex for exhibitions and amusements, as well as the first purpose-built stadium for the summer Olympics. It was called the Great White City and had a strong imperialist theme.

Ever since, this area of London has been associated with entertainment and leisure. See Television Centre with its iconic 1950s architecture; the UK's first public Japanese garden, built for the 1910 Japan-British Exhibition; the White City Estate; and the memorial to the 1908 Olympic Games.
