Thinking about what to do this weekend? Fancy one last trip with the family before school starts? Book a stay at London’s Burning which is a celebration of today’s 350th anniversary of the Great Fire of London that launched last night to rave reviews.
The Great Fire of London swept through the city on Wednesday September 5th in 1666, starting at King Charles II’s baker in Pudding lane, destroying 400 streets,13,200 houses, 87 churches and 44 livery halls, leaving up to 80,000 people homeless.

London’s burning depicts the historic scenes at various installations and events, running nightly from today until Sunday. Use or to book a stay in the capital and enjoy the free, outdoor events at St Paul’s (lit up with fiery projections), the Tate Modern, the National Theatre and the Museum of London’s indoor Fire! Fire! exhibition. Guildhall Yard, north of the river, has been transformed into a wonderland of light and colours with giant installations and a Victorian magic lantern show telling the story of this catastrophic disaster.

 Sunday’s grand finale sounds truly impressive. A 120ft-long wooden replica of 1666’s skyline – that passers-by can see in the day – will be floated down the Thames before being set alight between Blackfriars Bridge and Waterloo.
Why not try to get a ringside seat at one of the Southbank’s restaurants for a sight and night you won’t forget. All of these featured online booking companies will send a donation to your chosen charity via GoRaise’s donation reminder.
Fun, education, charity – they make the world go round.
