London's great fire and plague through the eyes of Samuel Pepys

Guided Tour | City of London

Wednesday 29 October 2014 - 11:00

Samuel Pepys – ‘an ordinary and extraordinary man’ chronicles in his diary nine of the most turbulent years of London’s history, giving a unique insight into both public and everyday life of mid-17thC London. This walk will trace Pepys’s colourful life and his observations on high and low life in London during the Plague, Great Fire and the regeneration of the City after those cataclysmic events. The walk will weave through the narrow alleyways, along routes that Pepys would have known (some roads cobbled – wear sensible shoes!), and will end with lunch in the café in the grounds of All Hallows by the Tower church.

Lunch is not included

This event has been organised by the Oxfordshire Volunteer Fundraising Committee to help raise money for the Art Fund.
