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.
The great diarist's character and reports are colourfully represented in this exhibition about seventeenth-century Britain
There'd be no Bridget Jones without him, but Samuel Pepys was so much more than just his diary. Discover the great man's habits, stories and experiences in an exhibition about the period between the execution of Charles I (1649) and the Glorious Revolution (1688), presented using Pepys's voice and character. Through 200 paintings and objects gathered from international museums, galleries and private collections, visitors will see the full story behind this formative era of British history, as well as getting an insight into Pepys's penchant for gossip, music and women.
Buy tickets for a special late opening of the exhibition (Nov 26) on our Pepys Late offer page.
