Walks with City Guides: Smithfield Ancient and Modern Markets...

Walks with City Guides: Smithfield Ancient and Modern Markets, Mayhem and Medicine

Join us for a free gentle lunchtime stroll around this fascinating and historic Smithfield area.

Friday 24 May, starting at Smithfield Rotunda Garden, 12.00 - 12.45pm and 12.45pm - 1.30pm

Your City of London Guide will tell the stories of the people who have lived, worked and died here, including jousting Kings, religious martyrs and the Londoners enjoying all the fun of St Bartholomew's Fair

So why not come along one lunchtime and enjoy some fresh air and gentle exercise whilst we bring to life the many stories of the people who have lived, worked and died here. We will learn about London's oldest hospital, where perhaps Sherlock Holmes fell off a roof, jousting Kings, religious martyrs, Londoners enjoying all the fun of St Bartholomew's Fair and a thousand year-old market.
