Event Details

 

 

From pageboy to the Duchess of Ulster, courtier to Customs Officer, well-travelled  and a poet, who chose to write in English, an extraordinarily radical choice for the time, then a second language, if not the third in a French speaking court.

The Canterbury Tales and a selection of the characters will be referred to throughout the walk to compare the lives of the many who lived in the City and without, their dress, their habits, what they ate and the manners of the period. 

On this occasion the walk will focus especially on Christmas, the celebrations and feasting, the ritual and routine, the preparation and enjoyment of the festivities during the C14th.

Also to discover why the annual pilgrimage to Canterbury was so important to the people of the time.

With the City of London as the backdrop, interesting stops, sculptures, signs and symbols for us to seek out whilst following in the footsteps of Geoffrey Chaucer.

Our journey begins in Ironmonger's Lane, the pilgrims' Mecca.

Please leave by Bank Underground - Exit 8 for Queen Victoria Street/Walbrook/Mansion House and we will meet by the Magistrates Court. Walk ends at Mansion House Underground Station. This is at the other end of Queen Victoria Street. The walk is circular in nature and will be up to 2 hours.
