Description

You’re going on a journey of more than 2000 years through London’s history from the arrival of the Romans to today with the City of London guide, Richard on this unique tour.

Using the array of breathtaking buildings that punctuate London’s famous skyline, hear why the city became the most influential in the world. Discover how, out of disaster and turmoil, London was able to rebuild itself and even prosper. After exploring the hidden gem of London’s Roman Amphitheatre, this private tour will conclude with an amazing view of what is arguably the most iconic building in the city of London- Sir Christopher Wren’s masterpiece, St Paul’s Cathedral.

What DID the Romans do for us? Who were the master-builders that changed the face of the Square Mile? Meet tyrants who constructed buildings with the sole purpose to intimidate alongside engineers who laid the first train tracks. Hear how the Great Fire and the Blitz shaped the city around us and discover buildings that range from eco-friendly or inside-out to literally able to melt cars.

Come learn to read one of the greatest cities in the world- you’ll never see London the same way again
