Full description
London is famous for its history, political power, architecture, and pubs. Begin your journey in the shadow of the monument to the Great Fire of London. Soon you will quench your thirst in a pub within its sight, but not before marveling at a fragment of Old London Bridge. From there, move on to see the remains of a church almost entirely destroyed by bombing during the Second World War. Then, enjoy a drink in a pub named after the most gruesome of all medieval execution methods. 

Continuing the tour, hear about Britain's first railway murder, then visit the 14th-century market, as seen in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. Then, step inside one of its picturesque buildings for another well-earned drink. Explore some of the City's best-preserved winding historic alleyways, including a small beautiful courtyard and a pub on the site of London's first coffee shop. Pass by one of the City's most famous and powerful buildings, the Bank of England. Finish your tour by resting your legs in a pub designed by Sir Christopher Wren himself.
