Full description
The original City of London is actually much smaller than the urban behemoth known today. Following the North Bank of the Thames, take to its most important buildings and monuments. Starting at the monument to the great fire that destroyed the city in 1666 this tour will take you deep into the history of London to see how this tiny geographic area has acted as the engine of social, economic and cultural change for nearly 1,000 years.

Along the way, your guide will stop at secret viewing platforms to show you the Thames, to catch sight of landmarks like the Shard, the HMS Belfast, and the Golden Hind. Following a path designed to maximize your experience of the city, the tour will finish on the Steps of St. Paul's Cathedral. Learn why London is still one of the most influential cultural cities in the world today.
