On this Day

Every day we highlight an important event in London’s varied history. It could range from a coronation to the birth or death of a famous person.

Note that due to space limitatons on our site and to show the most relevant information, On this Day pages will only show for up to one week after publication date. However each On this Day lists all the anniversary events for that month. You can access the most recent On this Day pages from the main menu.
