Colin Crosby Heritage Tours

Crime and Punishment (A Guided Walk in London)

"Crime and Punishment" is one of the very popular Guided Walks in London devised and led by the well known Blue Badge Guide Colin Crosby, of Colin Crosby Heritage Tours.

These walks are an enjoyable way of learning some Local History.

The starting point for this walk is outside St. Pauls Cathedral, by the Queen Anne Statue.

During the walk, Colin points out places of trial and execution, including the original Bridewell, Smithfield, Newgate Prison and the Old Bailey.

He also visits the area chosen by Charles Dickens as the site of Fagin's den, as well as the site where Sweeney Todd may have carried out his murderous career.

This is just one of the fascinating walks that Colin leads around parts of the City that are perhaps not as well known as they deserve. Others include "Bow Bells", "John Wesleys London", "Southwark and Bankside" and "Spitalfields".
