LONDON

Dark and Mysterious City

calendarizzato_uk

Since medieval times, Smithfield, being a large open area near the City, with easy access to water, was the site of a livestock market and also a place for public gatherings of various kinds: jousts and tournaments, an annual fair, as well as gruesome executions of political dissidents, common criminals, heretics and religious reformers.
During this peculiar walk, we will visit evocative ruins haunted by ghosts, the magnificent Victorian meat market, designed by Sir Horace Jones, some old churches, spooky cemeteries, and taverns and places that were the scene of murders, death sentences and bodysnatchers’s activities.
