Heretics and Horrors walk in the City of London

Heretics and Horrors City Walk

- Explore bloody London

Embark on this 90-minute private walking tour that explores the horrors of living through the Black Death, the Great Fire of London and the Blitz.

Walking along the medieval street plan of the City of London our tour starts in 1348 during the Black Death. How would people have lived during this scary time? What did they do to try and avoid this deadly disease? Why were cats and dogs no longer safe on the streets? What were Watchmen paid to watch?

We will discuss how Bloody Mary earned 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?
