What to expect

Fire! Fire! tells the story of the Great Fire of London in 1666 and marks the 350th anniversary of this terrible disaster. Learn how the fire started, spread and was finally beaten, and hear personal tales from people who experienced it. Get hands-on with 17th-century firefighting techniques and finally, learn how London rose from the ashes.

This brand new and immersive exhibition has been designed for schools and families.
