  • This Friday…

    Friday 6 May – Friday 6 – Smithfield

    Smithfield was the play area of London, a place where joustings and tournaments took place. Wat Tyler, one of the leaders of the Peasants’ Revolt, met King Richard II at Smithfield, where he was stabbed during an altercation with the Lord Mayor of London and subsequently died. During the reign of Mary Tudor, some 200 were burnt there for their religious beliefs and opinions. In 1305 Scottish revolutionary Sir William Wallace was put to death at Smithfield. A livestock market has been on the site since the Twelfth Century. In 1174 it was described by William Fitzstephen, clerk to Thomas à Becket, as “a smooth field where every Friday there is a celebrated rendezvous of fine horses to be sold, and in another corner are placed vendibles of the peasant, swine with their deep flanks and cows and oxen of immense bulk”.

    Come and find out more from City of London Guide Zena Sullivan.
