Leave the usual tourist haunts behind, and let your own personal guide introduce you to the 2000 years of history that are contained within the one square mile of the City of London. With its own police force, Lord Mayor and customs, it really is a separate city.
Take an alternative route through its hidden gardens and atmospheric alleys to see the City in a different way.
From the devastation of the Great Fire of 1666 and the Blitz of the 1940s, the City’s famous financial institutions have risen again, like a phoenix from the ashes. Hear how London became one of the world's most important financial districts.
Along the way the City's financial history has influenced our culture and our language. What really goes on behind those office windows and how does technology affect architecture?
Medieval buildings jostle with striking modern architecture, Charles Dickens speaks across the centuries to Harry Potter and a large golden grasshopper adorns the ‘exchange’. No wonder film makers love this area! Come and discover this extraordinary place off the usual tourist routes!
