This one should be good. The Museum of London is putting an a boat trip down the river to teach us how the City managed to rebuild after the Great Fire of London in 1666.

The trip will be led by Meriel Jeater, the curator of the Museum of London's "Fire! Fire!" exhibition, and you'll hear all about the Fire, plus some other events that shaped and influenced the city's architecture.

The boat trip will begin at Westminster Pier and go all the way to The O2 and back again, passing many famous landmarks like St. Paul's, the Tower of London, Tower Bridge and Greenwich.
