The London Story
This fascinating London Walk combines comprehensive history with one of London’s most timeless quarters.
We explain how London exploded beyond the confines of the wall that corseted the Roman and medieval cities and evolved into the worlds first modern city.
We begin 2,000 years ago at the site of a Roman Temple, perched on a hill overlooking one of the capitals forgotten rivers Then we move through the ages via a maze of twisting, narrow alleyways.
We view the spectacular Guildhall, as well as Victorian London’s most beautiful market place (recently used as a film location for the Harry Potter movies). We view ( and even go inside) the spectacular Guildhall, London’s medieval palace.
We follow the progress of the Great Fire of London and stop to admire some of the most beautiful buildings and churches that rose, phoenix like, from its smouldering ashes.
We tell tales of Cordwainers and cowards, heroes and harlots. And we introduce a cast of characters that range form Boudica to Good Queen Bess; Brutus to Charles Dickens.
Wall to wall history made painless, provocative and, above all else, entertaining.
