Service Description

A guided walk looking at some of the most iconic buildings in the City of London, the ancient heart of the UK capital. Founded by the Romans in AD43, dramatically reshaped by the 17th century Great Fire and World War II bombings, today the City of London is a global financial powerhouse. On this walk, you will discover the best of its historical, architectural and cultural gems in the company of a knowledgeable City Guide. The itinerary includes the magnificent St Paul's cathedral, the hall of the ancient Goldsmiths Company (which still tests precious metals), the 15th century Guildhall, the neoclassical Mansion House (home to the Lord Mayor of London), Bank of England and Royal Exchange and the exuberant Victorian buildings of Leadenhall Market. At the Monument to the Great Fire of London of 1666, you will learn how the City of London rose from the flames of its greatest disaster. Please note that the walk lasts two hours and be prepared for all weathers! Start: Outside City of London Information Centre, St Paul's Churchyard, London EC4M 8BX (nearest tube: St Paul's) Finish: The Monument to the Great Fire, Fish Street Hill (nearest tube: Monument)
