London Fun Facts Walking Tour – Clerkenwell & Smithfield

One of my favourite walks is around Clerkenwell and Smithfield Market. I love this area of London! There is so much history here that I cannot possibly squeeze it all into one video but here is a nice walking tour which you could do starting at Farringdon. Farringdon Station was the terminus of the first subway (underground) line in the world, serving the area of Smithfield, London’s oldest meat market, which has existed for 1000 years. It was famous for wife selling in the 18th and 19th centuries and also martyrdom.
