Walk London’s rich history with Richard Cohen

The Clerkenwell Tour

Gin, bear-baiting, prisons, highwaymen, crusaders, rookeries, hangings, goldsmiths, clockmakers, monks, nuns, martyrs. Clerkenwell has seen them all. We visit London’s oldest suburb and are introduced to the many layers of history hidden in the streets of Clerkenwell. We visit Farringdon, Clerkenwell Green, St James Church, the Clerkenwell House of Detention, Ray Street, the Clerks’ Well, St John’s Gate, St John’s Priory, the Old Sessions House. The tour lasts 90 minutes to 2 hours. We end at one of the many historic Clerkenwell hostelries.
