Trial by Fire ©
The indomitable City of London

From Boudicca to the Blitz, from the Great Fire of 1666 to the threats of modern-day terrorism, the City of London has triumphed over 2000 years of destruction, devastation and disaster. Every time London gets knocked over she rises again, bigger and stronger than before. You just can't keep a good girl down!

Walk lasts: about 2 1/2 hours – with a scintillating refreshment break 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.
