Christmas Morning 1660: The London of Samuel Pepys
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.
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.
