Seeing 2000 years of London's history within a 90 minute walk around the old City of London is a breathtaking experience. On this tour we not only show you some of our more famous sites, but also many of the secret locations which showcase London's medieval, roman and modern history. Your expert guide will navigate you from remains of the roman and medieval wall, through to the 900 year old fortress of the Tower of London and onto a 17th century plague cemetery and to the hidden remains of the original stone London Bridge. As we move towards the end of the tour, prepare to be amazed by the juxtaposition of ancient and modern in the heart of the financial district. High rise buildings jostle for position with old churches, pubs and market places. Certainly a tour which requires an expert guide in order to navigate you through the alleyways and courtyards, and to reveal the secret and profound history around each corner.
