Matt, I think they went to see the famous ‘hospital’ that housed the severely mentally ill. It began in the mid-13th century and was still well know by Pepys time. The hospital gave the world the term for noisy chaos. I’m sure I’m not doing this Justice,if someone knows more about the place as a tourist stop, please weigh in.

Happy New Year plus 1 as it is after midnight. Glad to see this site is still up and running. I bought a full set of Pepys diaries years ago. Meant to really get my teeth sunk into them,but…life. Fingers crossed that this wonderful resource can help me along in 2022.
