The Secret Diaries

A walk through the hidden London of Samuel Pepys.

In 1660 Samuel Pepys started his fascinating daily diary about life in London. He maintained this for nearly 10 years. It was written in his own shorthand and was not fully translated until 300 years later. This walk visits several places known to Pepys. We examine not only the momentous events of the time such as the plague and the great fire, but many of the personal events and qualities so beautifully described in his diaries.

Starts outside Tower Hill Underground Station
