I have thought about one or more geocaches along one of the pilgrim's routes alluded to by Chaucer in the Canterbury Tales. In fact the "Pilgrim's Way" would take us out of London, but there are many references that could be used in some interesting geocaches.
Follow the title link to the Wiki article on the Tabard. Looks like we can find The George pub. The Tabard was right next door. You all remember the Middle English?
Bifel that in that season on a day,
In Southwerk at the Tabard as I lay
Redy to wenden on my pilgrymage
To Caunterbury with ful devout corage,
At nyght was come into that hostelrye
Wel nyne and twenty in a compaignye
Of sondry folk, by aventure yfalle
In felaweshipe, and pilgrimes were they alle,
That toward Caunterbury wolden ryde;
The chambres and the stables weren wyde,
And well we weren esed atte beste;
