Vice and Virtue Tour

The Victorian period wasn't known as 'The Age of Reform' for nothing.. Meet Abney's law breakers, reformers, justice seekers and even one of Britain's most notorious hangmen on the Vice & Virtue tour, led by your cemetery guide @misssamperrin. Hear about the suffragette force-fed in solitary confinement, the satirist charged with blasphemy and sedition in his fight for freedom of the press, the police officers who lost their lives apprehending criminals, as well as a former prostitute whose involvement in a sensational criminal trial rocked Victorian society to its core!

Please wear sensible shoes and sunscreen, this walk will last approximately 1.5 hours.
