Secret London: A Virtual Tour with Dr. Richard Benfield
Wednesday, May 5 at 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
“He who is tired of London is tired of life itself” said Dr. Johnson in 1777. This of course suggests that there is a myriad of attractions and events for the visitor to London to see. But most visitors only see the more famous Tower of London, royal palaces, royal parks, and the world-class museums. On this tour we will look at twenty historic places and attractions that most visitors to London are not only unaware of but also whose location is unknown. From Roman London, through Chaucer’s taverns, to the haunts of Jack the Ripper, come with us for an hour of mystery, surprise and discovery in Secret London!
Presented by Dr. Richard W. Benfield, Professor Emeritus of Geography, Central Connecticut State University.
