St George, Dragons and Medieval Beasts in Salisbury – Afternoon WalkMonday 2nd August 2021
The celebrated Blue Badge guide, David Richards hosts a guided tour through Salisbury introducing us to St George, Dragons and Medieval Beasts on Monday 2nd August.
The afternoon walk and talk gives an opportunity to discover Salisbury’s special historical relationship with St George and the city’s amazing range of dragons, wyverns, griffins, unicorns and other fantastical beasts. St George, the dragon slayer, has been the patron saint of England since the time of Edward lll. The medieval Merchant Guild of Salisbury chose him as their patron saint and the resultant Fraternity of St George effectively ruled the city, portrayals of dragons are still scattered throughout the modern city. Today Salisbury is also rich in mythical and modern allusions to other extraordinary creatures. The tour examines the role of animal images, both real and fabulous, in the life of the city.
