London Walking Tour – Heretics and Horrors – Friday 1st September @ 1.30pm

If you are looking for something to do with the children / grandchildren in the summer holidays, the Cazenove Association has arranged for a “Heretics and Horrors walk” on Friday September 1st at 1.30pm.  (https://londonguidedwalks.co.uk/tour/heretics-horrors/)  This 90 minute private tour leaves from St Pauls and walks along the medieval street plan of the City of London, exploring the horrors of living through the Great plague, the Great Fire of London, and the Blitz and discussing how people survived such a chaotic time.  Also:-

  • How did Bloody Mary earn her name, was she as bad or worse than her father Henry VIII? and why did people fear her?
  • Were body snatchers a necessity?
  • Did Sherlock Holmes really jump?
  • And much more!

Please note this is a walking tour and there will be some steps.  Non members are welcome to attend but it is recommended that this may not be suitable for children under 10.  The price of this tour will all be dependent on the number of attendees so I cannot say at this stage the definitive per person cost, but the maximum it will be is £20 per person.   Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis, and there is a minimal allocation which if we do not reach it we cannot proceed with this event.

If you are interested in attending please let me know ASAP – closing date Friday 4th August.
