Free Tour Witches and Witchcraft History

“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 free walking 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 free tour is replete with a fascinating side of London’s history that is hardly ever mentioned.
Come and see London through different eyes with Wonders of London.

Please note/be aware that while this tour is not designed or meant to be offensive, it does have topics that may be viewed by some as such. These topics are approached from a historical perspective and are necessary for the subject matter of this tour. While their inclusion is not meant to offend, some attendees may find the subject matter troubling.

The topics include, but may not be limited to:

1. The historical involvement of the church and religion within context
2. The involvement of certain historical figures within context
3. Descriptions of different methods of torture (These descriptions are neither callous nor gratuitous)

Wonders of London works on a pay what you feel basis, we understand that many of you have travelled various distances to get here, some of you might be locals, some of you might be on holiday here and we know that it can be difficult to enjoy all of London’s best attractions without spending a fair penny. We want our tours to be accessible to anyone and everyone so we don’t charge a ticket price but just bear in mind that are guides are working guides so we ask that at the end of the tour just have a think about what the tour was worth to you and pay however much or small you feel
