The Poxy, Flaming Pub Walk ©
London life in the calamitous seventeenth century

In the 1600s, the people of London lurched from catastrophe to catastrophe: religious strife, a bitter Civil War, recurring plague and the Great Fire that would ultimately lay waste to four fifths of the City. Big Smoke takes you on a walk around the City of London in a 'World Turned Upside-Down'.

Walk lasts: about 2 1/2 hours – stopping in genuine 17th-century pubs along the way.

Your guide: Karen Chester is a fully trained and registered City of London Guide Lecturer, and will be wearing the prestigious City Badge.

Big Smoke Walks take place whatever the weather. Big Smoke reserves the right to limit numbers.
