Service Description

Smithfield, St Bartholomew's & Charterhouse area. London has a long and dark history of martyrs, public executions, body snatchers, crime and punishment - and butchery. Hear tales of hangings and burnings; grave robbers and law enforcement; and the annual fair that became so riotous it was banned after 700 years. Discover medieval monasteries, the country's oldest hospital and the City of London's oldest house. See London's most famous courthouse, on the site of its most notorious former prison. The walk lasts approximately two hours. Please be prepared for all weather conditions! Start: St Paul's tube station, Exit 2 (signed to St Paul's Cathedral) Finish: Charterhouse Square (nearest tubes: Barbican, Farringdon)
