Heretics and Horrors Tour - Explore bloody London

21 Sep kcl


Embark on this 90-minute guided walk in the City of London exploring the horrors of living through the plague and the Great Fire of London.

Walk along the medieval street plan of the City of London. How would people have lived during the great plague? What did they do to try and avoid this deadly disease? Why were cats and dogs no longer safe on the streets? What were Watchmen paid to watch?

We will discuss how Bloody Mary earned her name, was she as bad or worse than her father Henry VIII? and why did people fear her?

Were body snatchers a necessity? Did Sherlock Holmes really jump?
