"Samuel Pepys" Harwich Favorite Tip by Ash59

Harwich General: 14 reviews and 15 photos

  House, Harwich
by Ash59

Favorite thing: Samuel Pepys (1633 - 1703), was a frequent visitor to Harwich. As First Secretary of the Admiralty, MInister of Parliament for Harwich and the Master of Trinity House, he probably had several reasons for doing so.

Fondest memory: For those of you who don't know who Samuel Pepys is, he wrote a diary in the 17th century. Over a period of 10 years, he made one entry per day, giving us some of the greatest descriptions of life in London, during those times.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
