Gruesome Tales For Grown-Ups

The tale of Smithfield is a tale of blood. Plague pits, surgery, graverobbing, and some of the worst execution methods the medieval mind could devise- it's all happened here. We're going to see a church where so many people have been buried that the ground level has risen around it. This one is not for the faint-hearted!    

This tour includes several steps down.

Secrets of Covent Garden

The people of Covent Garden love theatre so much that they've rioted over it. The area is packed with dramatic stories about prima ballerinas, arsonists, Victorian barrow boys, and even a young Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart! I'll show you a secret alleyway that hasn't changed since the 1800s, and we'll even visit a plague burial ground. Hold your nose!

This tour is wheelchair-accessible.

A Brief History of London

Want to get to know London in a short space of time? Lived here for years, but never explored its history? We're going run down the city's greatest hits, from the Romans to the Great Fire and the Swinging Sixties. With an expert hand (moi) to guide you through the whole thing, we'll zoom through 5,500 years of history in about two hours. Hold on to your hats!

This tour is wheelchair-accessible.

Votes For Women

In 1890, the idea of women voting seemed a dangerous absurdity- like a dog riding a bike. Just thirty years later, we had our first female MP. Find out how our courageous sisters did it in this tour through Westminster, the heart of state power. We're going to hear about some of their strange protests and the even stranger arguments against women getting the vote.
