Perambulations with Pepys: the man and his city
This will be a virtual tour on Zoom and an insight into the life of Samuel Pepys presented by City of London Guide, Andrew Catto.
Join Andrew for a virtual tour of the City of London, on which we will explore aspects of the life of the writer of one of the most famous diaries in the world. Starting from his birthplace just off Fleet Street, we will stop at St Paul’s, the Royal Exchange and the Monument among other locations, as we talk about his many roles and relationships. We will finish near the Tower of London (where he was briefly imprisoned), visit ‘our own church’ and finally, the relatively new memorial to his life and work. The virtual tour will last approximately one hour including an opportunity for questions.
