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 had her heart ripped out giving rise to '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!

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