Who Knew

Hidden history: exploring the layers of London

Who knew ...

That the City was uninhabited for 300+ years after the Romans?
That the Great Fire started in Pudding and ended at Pye?
That a rare survival of a Tudor house was only revealed by the blast from a Zeppelin bomb?
Hundreds of years of fascinating history have occurred within the Square Mile: but you need to know where to look to find the traces and understand the story. The City was uninhabited after the Romans, devastated by the Great Fire and the Blitz and heavily rebuilt by the Victorians, so this can be challenging: this walk aims to guide you through the history and help you put together the pieces and the layers so you understand the full story.
