Mile End

Mile End is a district in East London, England. It was one of the earliest suburbs of the City of London and joined the Metropolis in 1855. In 1381, it was a significant site of the Peasants’ Revolt, when 100,000 Essex rebels protesting tax collection camped at Mile End and met with King Richard II, who signed the rebels’ charter before execution the leaders and many rebels. In the nineteenth century, Mile End became the site of a people’s palace. Novelist Walter Besant had proposed a palace with concerts, reading rooms, and various other educations and entertainments. Together with philanthropist Edmund Hay Currie, the Queen’s Hall was established in 1887 on the Mile End Road.
