About this Event

You probably know that Hatton Gardens is famous for diamonds- both trading and robberies- but did you also know that Queen Elizabeth 1 danced with Sir Christopher Hatton under a Cherry Tree, whose trunk still forms part of the Mitre pub?

Or that Elizabeth, Sir Christopher Hatton's wife, is reputed to have come to a gory end in 'Bleeding Heart yard' ?

Or that St Ethedreda church has been here since 1290 sited in Ely Place which has its very own jurasdiction evolved from the days of the Bishops of Ely.

Neither did I until I researched this facinating corner of Camden!

Hear also about Charles Dickens' portrayal of women whilst standing near the pub where Dickens' Oliver Twist character Bille Sykes reputedly drank.

Join us on this 2 hour walk, which starts at Chancery Lane exit 2, and finishes near Farringdon tube station to hear more stories.
