It's a pinnacle moment in London's history, and to commemorate 360 since this historic fire, the Museum of London is running an interactive exhibition taking families back to medieval London to explore the evidence to find out how the fire started and spread.
On top of this, four iconic London locations will be lit up: St Paul's Cathedral with an installation by artist Martin Firrell, the National Theatre with text and flames and text, there'll be fiery performances outside the Tate. The spectacular finale - a collaboration between Artichoke and American ‘burn’ artist, David Best - will see a 120-metre long sculpture of the 17th century London skyline set alight on the Thames in a dramatic retelling of the Great Fire of London.
Discover the personal stories of Londoners who were there at the time and get up close with rarely seen 17th century artefacts and discover more about how the city we know and love today rose out of the ashes of the great fire.
