Heretics and Horrors Walk Reviews

Very enjoyable walk given by a well informed and humorous tour guide. A pleasure to attend and we would attend more of these. Elise W

An excellent walk as always. Fascinating facts and stories and the opportunity to explore different parts of the city. Hazel is a wonderful guide. Meryl W

Really interesting walk and talk. History made fun by Hazel, our very engaging and knowledgeable guide. Highly recommended to people of all ages. Will definitely look for another walk! Deborah P

Enlightening, Informative talk. Very little to walk actually, around St Paul's and Ending at Smithfields. Louise L

Fascinating talk and walk - a real eye opener. We saw churches and ornate city gates such as the ones near St Paul’s showing statues of Stuarts Charles 1 and his son Charles 11 that I had not noticed before. Heard about the Great Fire of London when houses were pulled down to stop the spread and Londoners having to camp in nearby fields - more dying then because of poor conditions than in the fire. We heard about heads on spikes, acting as deterrents; walked past the old Bailey, site of Newgate prison where public executions were held nearby. We saw crumbling churches now city gardens and ended up passing Barts hospital and stopping near Smithfield market to hear about Bloody Mary’s religious martyrs burnt at the stake there and the rebels of the Peasants revolt meeting Richard 11 and the killing of their leader. Nearby is the ancient Priory Church of St Bartholomew the Great which I visited too - a wonderful surprise. Merle A

Thoroughly enjoyed hearing historic information about the places I walk through every day. Well worth time and cost. Julie F

Excellent walk, appropriate for the date (Oct 31st) and lots of interesting historical information. Patricia C
