Event Details

 

Departing from the church All Hallows by the Tower you will be taken on a journey through Restoration London.

It's the 1660's and King Charles II has been restored to the throne, plague, political unrest and the devastating Great Fire of 1666 cast London into an uncertain future. Discover the ancient streets and explore their exciting past, and how our modern city was shaped from such a disaster. Learn the story of the Great Fire and how the City and its people responded, and how it still impacts us today.

You'll be taking in the fine architecture that still survives today, understanding the artistic symbolism and getting to know the characters that built them; tour features some of Christopher Wren's finest architectural work and contempory accounts of this eventful time in the City's history.

Discover some of the ancient trade guilds and social institutions and their roles within Restoration London. Learn the origins and history of the streets of modern London, and which were the most important and why.
