Explore the history of London’s most terrible decade through the eyes of a doctor! In a nation where the reverberations of a bloody civil war could still be felt, it was the darkest of years for its greatest city. Divided across lines of class and religion, still feeling the after-effects of The Great Plague, The Great Fire came and seemed unstoppable, engulfing everything before it in flames for days on end.

This walking tour will start at The Royal College of Physicians and end in Golden Square in Soho. We are fortunate to have secured Berwyn Kinsey to lead our walk. Many will remember Berwyn from our Rough Justice walk last year. At the end of the walk, we will be visiting a pub in Soho for a hearty 2 course lunch. Drinks are not included in the event price.
