The Museum of London will be putting on a family-friendly walk around the sites associated with the Great Fire of London.

You'll find out how the Great Fire started, how it spread, what they did to tackle the blaze, and how they finally put it out.

Was the baker in Pudding Lane really to blame?

Along the way you'll take part in some fun mini challenges.
