Gunpowder, Treason and Plot: A Guy Fawkes Walk


Monday 5 November | 18.45-20.00 | Westminster


Remember, remember the fifth of November! On this walking tour we’ll be focusing on gunpowder, treason and plots. We’ll learn about conspiracies and riots that have been revolting their way through Westminster since the days of William Conqueror. Our route will take us from Westminster Abbey to Trafalgar Square, via the Houses of Parliament, Whitehall and the Banqueting House. We’ll discuss Walter Raleigh, Guy Fawkes, Oliver Cromwell and many others who plotted to kill the king.  We’ll look at the architecture and histories of these epic buildings and discuss how riots in Westminster irrevocably changed the course of British history. The streets are the place to be in London on fireworks night – we’ll end the tour in good time to ensure you can find the best viewing platform!

A huge thanks from us for helping make last night’s event so special. We are getting such positive feedback from all of the clients – some of the most glowing I’ve ever received. I was really impressed with everything you guys did so please pass on my thanks to your team as well for making it such a success.

My son Charlie and I were taken round the National Gallery by Rose Balston, and in three brief hours, we were inspired to levels of wonder. Rose has the gift of allowing you to discover things in the paintings that you would never have noticed before…I’d strongly recommend you join an Art History UK tour.
