5K STREET ART TOUR

Third Sunday of each month March-September

 Along a scenic 10km guided running tour from Tower Hill to Marble Arch, you'll uncover the most gruesome side of London's history; from the remains of notorious medieval prisons, to the sites of ghastly gallows and famous executions. What were the worst crimes committed by Londoners? And how were they punished?
 

The tour ends by running along the 'Black Parade', which follows in the footsteps of thousands of condemned prisoners as they journeyed from Newgate Prison to the Tyburn Gallows. Which famous criminals took this path? Who managed to escape? And what happened when they got to their destination?
 

Discover London's dark and twisted underbelly with Secret London Runs' Crime and Punishment running tour.
