The Museum of London opens its Great Fire of London exhibition, Fire! Fire! This Saturday. Combining a variety of sights, sounds, smells, textures and interactive exhibits, taking people back in time to 1666.

The Great Fire began in a bakery on Pudding Lane on September 2 1666. The city burned for three days, the flames spreading rapidly and consuming the homes of approximately 70,000 people. It also burned landmarks such as St Paul's Cathedral to the ground.

The aftermath of the fire reveals the devastating effect it had on the city and its residents. Within a makeshift tent overlooking Wenceslaus Hollar’s panorama of destroyed London, audio extracts detail the personal suffering of the 100,000 displaced Londoners who fled to the fields around the City of London.

A staggering 80% of the city was destroyed.

Fire! Fire! runs from 23 July 2016 – 17 April 2017 and is accompanied by a programme of talks and events. Tickets are priced from £8 for adults and £4 for children online, with family tickets also available. For further information, please visit www.museumoflondon.org.uk/fire-fire.

Fire! Fire! Museum of London, 150 London Wall, London EC2Y 5HN, 23 July 2016 – 17 April 2017.
