One of the most infamous disasters in the world, the Great Fire of London still fascinates and intrigues people from all over the globe.

To mark 350 years since the devastating fire broke out on Pudding Lane, the Museum of London is playing host to a fantastic interactive exhibition.
The event, which runs from 23 July until 17 April, allows guests to experience the destruction that London underwent during the Great Fire and the journey it went on to rebuild itself in the years and decades after. Family friendly, the 'Fire! Fire!' exhibition at the Museum of London has no minimum age limit, making it the perfect day out for you and all your loved ones.

Visitors will be able to see the events as they happened through the eyes of the people who witnessed them first hand, allowing you to explore the evidence yourself and try and get to the bottom of one of the biggest mysteries in London's rich history. By stepping right into Pudding Lane, you'll see London as it was in the 17th century. From here, you will be taken on a journey through the bakery - where the fire is thought to have started - and see how the city was soon engulfed by flames.

The interactive exhibition invites guests of all ages to turn into an archaeologist for the day and try to identify real objects that were melted by the fire. You will also hear the personal stories of those affected by the fire and see how London was able to rise from the ashes of the disaster. Throughout the exhibition, the Museum of London is hosting a series of themed walks and tours, free afternoon lectures, workshops, family activities, children’s sleepovers and festival days.

So make sure you check the full programme before you plan your day out in London!
Tickets for adults start at as little as £8 when booked online, while children between the ages of five and 16 can get in for £4.
There's no charge for those under five and concessions and family tickets are also available.
