Burnings, Butchery & Black Death: London’s Bloody Past

Travel through a thousand years of history, meeting kings, body snatchers, Charles Dickens, an eighteenth century ghost, and William Wallace – aka Braveheart (and learn how he was in no fit state to shout “Freeeedoooommmm!” whilst being executed!) 

On this virtual tour you’ll visit the areas around Smithfield, for centuries London’s site of both animal and human slaughter. You’ll learn about how the city disposed of the tens of thousands of Black Death corpses in the fourteenth century, the execution methods used in the Middle Ages, and how the area became a notorious slum which Dickens used as the setting for Oliver Twist.

The virtual tour will take place over Zoom, with a login link emailed to you a few days beforehand.

Tickets cost £10 per login, and the virtual tour takes approximately one hour.

Virtual London Tours for the Metropolitan Grand Lodge Air Ambulance Appeal

Dear Kent Club Members, we are proudly supporting the Metropolitan Grand Stewards in promoting their ambitious target for the Up Against Time Appeal.

The Metropolitan Grand Stewards 2023 team are aiming to raise £20,000 for the Air Ambulance appeal, to coincide with twenty years of Metropolitan Grand Lodge. In support of this vital cause, WBro Tom Currie PMetGStwd will be running one-hour virtual tours of London over Zoom:
