Events in London - Friday 31st January

Need some inspiration for 31st January? Guy Fawkes was put to death on this day in 1606, following his failed attempt to blow up the House of Lords. Why not visit the House of Lords yourself? It doesn’t cost anything to sit inside the public gallery. It’s a great way of seeing the spectacular decorations inside Parliament.
