Back in the 1600s, Londoners would gather to witness a very particular form of public entertainment. Hushed crowds would wait in anticipation for an offender to meet their end at the hands of an executioner. On the 30th January 1649, it was the reigning monarch, King Charles I, who had an appointment with the man who would end his life.
This self-guided audio tour charts the life and death of this ill-fated king, taking you to some of London’s most famous and iconic sights including:
• Henry VIII’s hunting lodge-turned-royal palace
• One of London’s most picturesque royal parks, once home to an elephant
• The abbey where all kings and queens have their coronation
• The ancient hall where Charles I was put on trial
• Henry VIII’s favoured jousting ground
• The remains of what was once Europe's largest palace
This walking tour can be enjoyed on location or even virtually at home with VoiceMap's Continuous Play function which disables the GPS playback.
