Tour: A Most Horrid Flame

Samuel Pepys described the Great Fire of London as burning with 'a most horrid, malicious, bloody flame'. The fire spread so quickly that it seemed to have a life of its own, and by Day Two Londoners were beginning to despair of ever putting it out. By the time the fire was brought to heel, it had destroyed most of the City of London. But why did a City which had been extinguishing fires for centuries succumb now to the flames?

This tour explores how the fire took hold as well as the various factors which combined to ensure the destruction of one of Europe's most important cities. It also considers some of the implications of the Great Fire and its aftermath.
