Location: Tower Bridge Road
Time: 11:30 and 14:15
London Car Free Day provides a unique opportunity to re-live history where it happened.
It is 1381. The poor are fed up with bad government, oppression and most of all, the hated poll tax.
Join the peasants on the Tower Bridge Road, opposite the Tower. They have gathered at St Katharine's and are now planning to attack the Tower of London. See if you can impress the King when he appears on the battlements.
Inside the Tower, seeking safety, is the young boy king, Richard II. If only they could talk to him directly and not through his wicked advisors, maybe he can be won over to their cause?
This is a free event and does not include entry to the Tower of London.
Saturday 19 October – Sunday 27 October 2019
