What are we going to do

You'll experience walking through the City of London with a real expert, who'll take you places the average visitor wouldn't find. The original square mile is where everything began nearly 2000 years ago, and you'll see sites and hear stories that shaped the London we know today... from its origins as a small pRoman trading port to its role as one of the world's leading financial centres. We'll be walking on Roman and medieval streets, taking in little alleyways, colourful period markets and magnificent buildings ranging from iconic historic landmarks to striking skyscrapers. You'll learn about the unique way the City is governed and how centuries of change, global trade... and occasional turmoil have helped create the vibrant mix of culture, history and commerce that it is today. Along the way, we'll stop at one of the City's most charming pubs so that guests can refresh themselves with a pint.
