About

Executions, body snatchers, a plague pit, notorious trials and 'hanging breakfasts' at Newgate Prison - just part of this walk. See London's oldest hospital and the UK's oldest Roman Catholic church, and hear the violent history of the 'smooth field'. Hogarth, Sir Thomas More, Wat Tyler and William Wallace all have connections here - and with your guide you can follow in the more recent steps of Hugh Grant, Gwyneth Paltrow and Joseph Fiennes.
