History and stories at every turn. Our walk takes us off the beaten track to visit the hidden, the obscure and the quirky.

About this event

The ‘Square Mile’, in the 14th Century home to 80,000 people, today to less than 8,000. From the Romans to medieval London, through to the skyscrapers of the 21st Century.

On our walk we will discover the sites the Romans chose for both the forum and the amphitheatre , uncover the Jewish quarter established in the time of William the Conqueror and encounter the site of a 17th century plague pit.

We will tell the story of the first Bluecoats School, Old Tom the goose and the ghostly tale of Sarah Whitehead.

As you would expect personalities abound – the famous like Pepys and Dickens, and the less well known like William Jenkins, at 6 feet, 7 inches buried beneath the Bank of England to prevent body snatchers making off with him!
