A GUIDED TOUR THROUGH THE STORY OF THE GREAT FIRE OF LONDON IN THE WORDS OF THE WITNESSES

---

DESCRIPTION

WHAT YOU'LL SEE & LEARN

The diaries of Samuel Pepys and John Evelyn from the 2nd to the 6th September 1666 will be our guides as we hear the story of the Great Fire and the people and buildings it affected.

How did it start?
Who was instrumental in stopping it in its tracks?
What could have happened if it hadn't been brought under control?

Was it all an accident, or was there a plot behind it?

All these questions and more will be answered.

WHERE WE'LL GO

We'll be covering the area affected by the fire from its discovery by Samuel Pepys near Seething Lane in the east of the City, over to the west beyond St. Paul's Cathedral and Ludgate Hill.

WHAT TO BRING

Yourself, some refreshment, and Zoom!

YOUR HOST IS RHYS WILLIAMS

Hello, Not Grumpies!

I'm Rhys. I'm a primary school teacher, and I love history. But history is so much more than the facts. History contains the word 'story', and it's the stories of the places we visit that are most fascinating to me. So... I want to share them all with you.

I am also one of the main actors in our Murder Mystery evenings, and you might see me captaining a team for the fortnightly quiz.
