London

The City of London is where the story of the UK's capital truly begins. Founded by the Romans after they settled in 43 AD, a walk through the City means you are passing through almost 2,000 years of history. Trade and commerce continue to define the district but amidst the modern hi-tech 21st century citadels of financial services are testaments to the past - notably The Tower of London & the magnificent St Paul's Cathedral with it's special & moving monument to Americans servicemen of WWII.
