Free Tour Witches
November 24, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - December 23, 2018 @ 9:00 pm
“Double, double toil and trouble; fire burn and caldron bubble. Fillet of a fenny snake, in the caldron boil and bake…” William Shakespeare.
For thousands of years witches of all form and variety have walked the isles of Britain and been the topic of folklore and history. On this tour we discover more about witches and in particular the witches of London. With the stories of bizarre practices and occurrences, anecdotes and a look at the unjust treatment of people thought to be witches from both witches and people who adored them or feared them, this two hour long historic tour is replete with a fascinating side of London’s history that is hardly ever mentioned.
Come and see London through different eyes.
