City Heroes and Villains

City Heroes and Villains: Heroic acts and dastardly deeds. Discover London from the Romans to the Blitz via the Great Fire. Meet body snatchers, the City’s greatest architect, a murderous queen and the thief who kept escaping from Newgate prison. Along the way hear the tales of great courage, charitable works, traitors, crooks, executions, fire and war as we discover the people and events that helped shape the City over the last 2,000 years.
