Culture snap

A new start-up business in Deptford is aimed at providing guided cultural tours of Deptford and Greenwich for visitors and locals.

Culture Snap
, which is based at the Albany, is a tour guide company consisting of nine young adults between the ages 18-27. They were brought together by Head for Business CIC under the Future Jobs Fund programme – a government initiative to get young people back into employment.

The name is intended to suggest 'snappy' tours run by young people to promote the neglected area of Deptford, South East London. "We aim to show residents, tourists and people new to the area of all ages, Deptford as we have discovered," the website explains. "We spent many hours researching the history and culture of Deptford and its surrounding areas to compile a 2 hour tour of the best spots of Deptford."

Find out more about the team members here; you can also read about the two tours they currently offer here.

The website is missing information about tour prices, but I'm informed these are as follows:

Adults : £8.20
Children : £4.70
Concessions : £5.50

Culture Snap is currently putting together more information in the form of a zine which should be available shortly.
