A recreation of Pudding Lane and a huge panorama of London in flames are just some of the immersive and interactive exhibits on show.

This family-friendly exhibition is also presenting, as its centrepiece, a restored 17th fire engine.Other highlights include letters from eyewitnesses who escaped the inferno and a variety of flame-scarred artefacts, some being displayed for the very first time.

Although Fire! Fire! focuses on the eve before the blaze - some of the many myths surrounding how the inferno started are also explored.In addition, the exhibition reveals how the city slowly managed to recover.
