Jack the Lad

Things to do, Walks and tours

A free 45-minute walk exploring the St Giles (Sept 17) and Holborn (Sept 19) areas as visitors hear the story of eighteenth-century thief Jack Sheppard. The burglar was well-known for his successful escapes from prison, and the walk includes a visit to one of the places he managed to break out of. The two walks are designed to be enjoyed either separately or as a series, so if you find Jack's story entertaining, go to both. Meet at 1pm at the orange information kiosk outside Holborn station. No booking required.
