Event description

Description

Pete Smith examines the lungs of London: the city’s parks. Find out how the Tudors’ love of hunting has left us a green legacy, and learn what we owe to William III’s delicate chest, Charles II’s liking for a dip and George IV’s pet vanity project. Along the way you will hear about a duke’s library, two dead dogs and the time Oliver Cromwell nearly shot himself.
