Huguenot Footsteps: Greenwich CANCELLED

July 31 @ 11:00 am 12:30 pm

St Alfege Greenwich London
St Alfege Greenwich London

After the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes in 1685, a small but significant community settled in Greenwich around the Marquis de Ruvigny, a prominent exiled Huguenot soldier and diplomat who went on to have a distinguished career as a trusted confidant of William III. Many lived in Crooms Hill and worshipped at St Alfege Church – a few tombstones still remain. Expert guide Kate Boyle will tell you about the characters who once lived in this town full of history, their houses and their exploits, not all of which were strictly legal. Our tour will end outside the Fan Museum.

*Due to unforeseen circumstances, this tour has been cancelled. We apologise for any inconvenience. The next scheduled Huguenot Footsteps tour of Greenwich is taking place on Saturday 11 September at 11am.
