Exploring the ancient backstreets of Olde London, join Matt on a journey back to a time of pageantry, chivalry and festivals. Wandering through ancient churchyards and markets, past historic pubs and forgotten memorials, visitors will be immersed in the real medieval past of the City, learning about the heroic figures which defined this period. But alongside the splendour, it must be remembered that London’s history is also one of gore and violence- so be prepared to hear the tales of brutal executions, devastating plagues and the notorious villains themselves who are just as much a part of London’s past as the glorious heroes of the middle ages.
