The 31st May is the 350th Anniversary of Samuel Pepys’s final diary entry. We will have the entry on public display at the following times:
31st May: 2pm – 4pm
1st June: 11.30am – 12.30pm, 1.30pm-2.30pm
As well as the final diary entry, we will be displaying a solid gold coin struck by the Royal Mint to mark the occasion. The Pepys Library assisted in the design process by supplying the mint with a high resolution image of the final diary entry.
