Tour: Death and the City

For many centuries, public executions were held on London's open spaces, the condemned held in prisons run as private businesses. Not just crimes were punished at Tyburn and West Smithfield: you could find yourself on a gallows or chained to a stake purely because your conscience clashed with the political climate.

The City of London is an ancient place, a city of life but also a city of death. There are many grim stories lurking beneath the City's surface, and this tour takes you to sites on its western side connected with death, execution, and a deadly hoax.
