Murders, monasteries and martyrs: a walk through Smithfield
Hear the violent history of the ‘smooth field’ – including executions and a plague pit, plus body snatchers and notorious trials; Hogarth, Sir Thomas More, Wat Tyler and William Wallace all came here; see London’s oldest hospital and the UK’s oldest Roman Catholic church.
This walk meets outside Barbican underground station. No booking required – pay the guide (£8, £6 for concessions) who will be wearing a Clerkenwell & Islington Guides Association badge.
