Walks with City Guides

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

Friday 12 July 12:00 and 12:30 for 45 minutes

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

The City of London Guides are delighted to be joining the Culture Mile celebrations this summer by running short, free guided walks around the fascinating and historic area of Smithfield. 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.
