Passing through through streets largely unchanged for hundreds of years, you'll stand in the spots where the condemned drew their last breath and be thankful its the 21st century! You'll start off at Barbican and make your way to Charterhouse Square, whose tranquil ambiance belies the fact that 600 years ago it was the dumping ground for London's worst plague, the Black Death. Around the corner stands the open space of Smithfield, home to medieval jousts and grisly executions of people like William Wallace (Braveheart). And situated between these two gruesome sites is London's outstanding medieval church, St Bartholomew the Great, used in movies like Four Weddings & A Funeral and Sherlock Holmes. As you journey through the ancient city of London, you'll pass through a the shell of a church destroyed in the Blitz, through a park which holds the most touching of memorials, and make our way to the location of the city's long lost Roman Ampitheatre. For fans of atmosphere and history, guts & gore, this tour is hard to beat...
