For over 600 years Tyburn was the main site of executions in London and in that time over 50,000 people are believed to have been put to death there. The notorious Newgate Prison housed many of these unfortunate souls before dispatching them on their final journey for their date with a rope - the three miles they travelled would be the last on earth for the majority.
Along the way tales of crime, retribution and punishments in a darker age will give us an idea of the fate that befell those that got on the wrong side of the law in times past, and the myriad ways there were to die by execution in London's dark past.
This tour contains descriptions of violent and gory acts and is not suitable for children or those of a squeamish nature.
