Walking through the ancient streets of London, you’ll learn what lies beneath your feet, from 14th century Black Death victims to a long lost Roman Ampitheatre.

This tour takes you to some of the most atmospheric locations in London, including Smithfield – home to gruesome executions and an extraordinary late Tudor gatehouse – and ancient back streets surrounding the infamous Old Bailey and the beautiful Charterhouse Square.

You’ll be taken within the shell of a church destroyed in the Blitz, and be led into the park which displays one of the most touching memorials to heroic self-sacrifice you could possibly imagine.

The walk lasts 1.5 hours and will leave a lasting impression of a different side to London’s deep and extraordinary history.
