Description

The City of London was never a stranger to fires, however, in the early hours of Sunday, September 2nd 1666, a fire broke out in a bakery that would change London forever. When the ferocious fire eventually died down after a few days, its ravaged journey had left three-quarters of the city in ruins. On the Great Fire of London walk, you will learn about how the fire began and how it managed to seize the city so quickly. Find out who was to blame for the horrific fire and discover the people who fought against the fire to save the city.  You’ll make your way through the narrow streets of London and learn about the enormous impact the Great Fire of London had on the city. Uncover how the fire shaped what you see of London today with regards to the building restrictions that were put in place afterwards.  As you meander through the streets on this guided tour you will unearth the stories of those who were most affected by the fire and those who saw it as an opportunity to capitalise on the tragedy. Put yourself in the shoes of the people who watched their home set ablaze, not knowing if they would ever be able to go home again. The tour lasts 1 hour and 30 minutes, starting at Monument Station and finishing at St Paul’s Cathedral.
