Civil War and Commonwealth



According to Peter de Loriol’s endlessly fascinating “The London Book of Days”, on this day in 1649,  at what was effectively the end of the Civil War, “the Rump Parliament passed an Act … which created all people of the realm and territories of England a Commonwealth and Free State where Parliament would constitute the officers and ministers of the people without any kings or lords”.

Various sites associated with the Civil War and Commonwealth are visited on our “St Paul’s to Westminster Abbey”, “Aldgate, Bishopsgate and beyond”, “Historic Southwark” and “London Wall” standard walks, and on our  “Tudor and Stuart London”, “Tudor and Stuart City Highlights”, “Lost City Highlights” and “Rebellious London” themed specials.

Further details of all our walks are available in the “Our Guided Walks” section of our web-site.

Bookings may be made through the “Contact/Booking” section of the web-site, by e-mail (, or by phone (020-8998-3051).
