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.

London, City of London

2000 years of history contained within one square mile. The City guards its secrets but Sean, your expert guide, will unlock those secrets, explain and entertain you in this tour. Hear tales of The Tower of London alongside stories from the Great Fire of 1666 and the Blitz of World War II. Option to enter the Tower of London (recommend allowing half a day alone for the Tower of London, with the chance to see the fabulous Crown Jewels). A morning tour is strongly recommended to 'beat the line' for the Crown Jewels.

Can visit inside St Paul's Cathedral (excl. Sundays), and / or visit the site of the execution of William Wallace ('Braveheart') - and the tale of his torture and execution is not for the faint-hearted!

Tour Important Information

The City is located on the east side of the center. It is often referred to as The Square Mile and within it are an amazing 46 miles of lanes, alleys and streets. Unsurprising there is some walking in getting around the highlights. Sean is happy to arrange travel & transport and an itinerary that best suits you and allows you to make the most of your visit. Careful tour planning is key and will help keep time spent in lines to a minimum. This is a memorable day that delves into London's past and its ancient origins.

Wear comfortable shoes for walking and bring a light (preferably rain-resistant) jacket and umbrella. Even in high summer the odd occasional shower can occur (it's why it's such a 'green and pleasant land'!)

A half day tour of up to 4 hours. Morning tours end by 1pm; afternoon tours start from 1.30pm

The Tour of the Tower and All Hallows by the Tower Church

London
3 hours 10 min

During our tour we will explore the history of this site from Roman times and until today. We will look at how the fortress gradually evolved into a luxurious Medieval royal palace and then -- into the dark and fearsome place. You will hear the stories of the Tower's former inhabitants and inmates: from kings to courtiers who fell out of favour, young York princes, or the Gunpowder plotters. We will certainly visit the Jewel House where the Crown Jewels are kept under armed guard.
