Glyn Thomas, one of our annotators, has been very busy putting together a walk through the City of London around places familiar to Pepys and readers of his diary. I know some of you have obtained copies direct from Glyn, but we thought it would make sense to put it on the site for anyone else. The 22 page document describes the route and plenty of background. You can download it as a 432K PDF. Many thanks to Glyn for his hard work on this - do let him know what you think! (glyn_thomas1234 [at]

[Download link updated, 18 Jul 2012. See also Glyn’s other Pepys walks as PDFs: Westminster and Greenwich.]

Glyn also points out several guided Pepys walks happening in London shortly at He says:

Saturday 14 August, 2.30pm
From Charing Cross: “Intimate Details & Public Matters - The Westminster of Samuel Pepys”
£5.50, concessions £4.50, accompanied children under 15 free

And two Tuesdays in August (17th and 24th) with a qualified City of London Guide:

“From the Temple to the north side of St Paul’s. We see where Pepys was born, and many attractive sights recalling incidents from his life, from the serious to the ridiculous, and often enlivened by his own words. An insight into both this larger-than-life character and the late 17th-century City.” MEET outside Temple Underground Station at 2 pm. COST = £4 or £5.

Let the guide know that you got the information from the Pepys Diary website (she is unfamiliar with the Internet).

Thanks Glyn!
