We had a great time discovering new neighbourhoods and history lessons through this tour! A nice option for a visitor to London, or for anyone who has spent lots of time in the city but wants to learn about something different. Great value for money!

“The City” is one of London's most historic and
fascinating neighbourhoods. Here high rise office
towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with
Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually
every era in between, including Christopher Wren's
