Back in the fourteenth century half of London’s population was wiped out by the Black Death, and 1665 saw 100,000 people killed by the Great Plague of London. The city is still peppered with traces of the disease and its consequences, and this two-hour walking tour will guide you past plague pits, through ancient streets, into churches and round other historical locations. You’ll meet characters from the past along the way and as well as sharing terrible tales your guides will provide an insight into the ways Londoners dealt with the contagious disaster. 2018 walks take place on Saturdays at 2pm. Booking recommended. Find out more here.
