Over four nights 17th-century London burned. The city would never be the same again…
Wren, Rebuilding and The Great Fire of London will be a day of inspirational learning for your class, involving students in hands-on activities, story-telling, visits and a guided walk, helping them to experience their city with new eyes and new skills.
Children will explore the Great Fire – one of the most significant events in the history of their city. As budding architectural detectives, they will learn about Wren’s great re-building of London out of the smouldering ruins, and importantly consider what his impact is on their locality and cityscape today.
With two different options and walks on offer, they will step into Wren’s shoes, as they see the streets he walked, understand his genius as both scientist and architect, and discover his phenomenal achievements and 17th-century churches, buildings and monuments.
