Clerkenwell Culture Club presents a walk through Smithfield with Richard Cohen.
Braveheart, rebellious peasants, grave-snatchers, martyrs, plague pits, hangings, London’s raunchiest and most outrageous fairground and her most ancient hospital. Smithfield gives us a vivid glimpse of the sufferings and pleasures of old London.
The walk will cover Charterhouse, Smithfield Market, Cloth Fair, St Bartholomew the Great, Bart’s Hospital, St Sepulchre without Newgate, The Old Bailey, St Etheldreda’s and ending at Hatton Garden for Bleeding Heart Yard and the Old Mitre pub.
Meet at Farringdon Station. The walk should last 2 hours and there are possibilities for ending the tour in one of London’s most venerable and historic hostelries.
