Event description
A fun-filled walk through some of the City's gruesome tales

About this event

It takes guts to try and change the world.

For hundreds of years on The City’s ‘smooth fields’, people died - often excruciatingly - for what they believed in.

Join me for a walk through the narrow alleys of Smithfield and Clerkenwell in search of these martyrs. On our way we’ll be looking up to spot the area’s hidden history, finding plague pits, forgotten pubs and dramatic tales!

The walk will include entrance to St Bartholomew the Great, one of the oldest and most atmospheric churches in all of London.

The tour starts from Barbican Station and ends on Clerkenwell Green. Groups are limited to 10 attendees, rising to 15 attendees on dates from 17 May.
