Peasants Revolt Walk

I gave a walk for London Walks based on the Peasants Revolt - it was a very wet day and Transport for London conspired to cancel all trains going to Aldgate, but several hardy souls turned up and we had a good day retracing the steps of the Peasants Revolt.

Route: Aldgate, Crutched Friars, Tower Hill, London Bridge, Lombard Street, Cheapside, Guildhall, Smithfield.

On this special walk we reconstruct the events that shock the medieval world.

In 1381, following the introduction of the iniquitous Poll Tax, England's government nearly fell, shaken to the core by a revolt lead by simple working men. This dramatic tour provides a blow by blow account of the Revolt and depicts London in chaos in June 1381.
