In Times of Trouble – City of London, Private Guided Tour

Trip Highlights

  • Private Tour

  • Take in a darker part of London’s history

  • Extraordinary sites to hear the stories

  • Enjoy a beverage in a grade II listed gin palace with a murky past

Description

The 2000 year old City of London has seen plenty of glory over the years, framed by exquisite architecture from the splendour of St Paul’s Cathedral to the grandiose surrounds of the Guildhall.

However, with every tale of triumph in an ancient city comes its fair share of horrible happenings and London is no different. Pestilence and persecution, crime and punishment, war and fire, plots and body snatchers- with your expert guide and small group, wander the winding streets of the old city hearing of a past some have hard tried to forget, before settling your nerves with a drink at an old gin tavern.

On this tour you will find no tall tales or alleged hauntings. Every detail you will hear is, some might say unfortunately, all too true.
