London History Day

7th June 2019

London History Day is an annual celebration of what makes London a unique city, on 31 May. However, because we were on our Half-Term holiday on the official day we wanted to made sure we still marked the occasion.


Launched by Historic England in 2017,the date marks the anniversary of the day Big Ben first started keeping time in 1859.

On London History Day 2019, all Londoners are encouraged to go out and enjoy how the history of London’s people and places have contributed to the city’s unique identity. We will celebrate the day on social media by sharing lesser-known stories, historical facts and unique images of London.


In school we have dressed up as famous Londoners from history or famous London landmarks!
