Samuel Pepys' London

TRAVEL WITH ME NOW BACK TO A TIME WITH MANY PARALLELS TO OUR OWN

When lockdown beckoned in March 2020, The London Storyteller began a new adventure exploring the diary of Samuel Pepys from the year of the Great Plague in 1665 and documenting it on his YouTube channel.

Now we are delighted to present, The London Storyteller’s own unique take on the world of Samuel Pepys, his diary and London in the strange – yet strikingly similar – times of the 1660s.


Between 1660 and 1669, Samuel Pepy’s maintained a remarkably candid diary documenting the day to day of his personal and professional life. 

From fragrant personal entanglements to his frequent dealings with the royal court of restoration playboy, Charles II and his brother, James Duke of York.  Pepys lived and witnessed first hand some of the most defining events in London’s history such as the Great Plague of 1665 and the Great Fire of 1666.

“We had a great time with Tom! He was so friendly, knowledgeable about the city and history, and a great storyteller. We felt like were walking around London with a friend. We were also grateful for the non-rushed paced and the fact that he offered to at every stop of interest to take our photo. Since it’s just the two of us traveling, it’s a real treat to have more than just selfies! ”
