Christmas Morning 1660: The London of Samuel Pepys
Time Out says
This two-hour historical walk exploring the parts of London which seventeenth-century diarist Samuel Pepys would have spent time in involves a lot of death, which isn't the traditional topic of conversation for Christmas Day but will be a nice change from the schmaltz, at least. Visit Banqueting House to see the site where Charles I was executed, hear about Oliver Cromwell's disinterment from Westminster Abbey and learn about the lives of Londoners during the plague and the Great Fire of London. No booking is required – just meet by the Trafalgar Square Christmas tree at 11am.
