This Funzing Experience:

Time to step into your time-machine and venture with us to the year of 1666. Join us as we explore the events which during a few days in September 1666 left so much destruction, forcing Londoners to rebuild their lives.

The City of London was used to fires, but the one that broke out in a bakery in the early hours of Sunday 2nd September 1666 was very different. By the time the fire had died down three-quarters of the city lay in ruins. Hear how the fire started and how it was able to take hold and create so much devastation so quickly. Hear who was blamed for the fire and find out about those who fought to save the city.

Navigate the narrow streets of the City of London on this guided walk and hear how the Great Fire of London was the catalyst for modern building restrictions which changed the face of London forever.

Hear stories of some of the people affected by this devastating event and how others took advantage of the situation. Discover what it was like to experience your hometown burning, never knowing if you would ever go home.
