To Make the Punishment Fit the Crime

Judicial punishment is a vexed issue. For centuries, the law has tried to make the punishment fit the crime. This is clear to see in its struggle to deal with the death penalty. From the public display of execution to the fear of the afterlife, has the terror of the sentence of death really deterred the wrongdoer?

And what of those moments when the due process of law has been put in a questionable position? Impotent to act, challenged by natural justice, or made the tool of tyranny?

From a pickpocket prostitute to a she-wolf, from domestic abuse to the trade in human corpses, all will be exposed as we visit the sites within the City of London where the law has tried to grasp the slippery serpent of crime.

Guide tel: 07982 132231.

Meet outside Exit 1 (NOT the Cathedral exit) of St Paul’s Underground Station. The walk will take approximately 2 hours. For information on travel, please use Transport for London's Journey Planner.
