The City of London is one of the most fascinating areas of London and the heart of London. Founded as Londinium by the Romans almost 2000 years ago, the City has integral to the success of London. A City of London Tour allows you to explore the areas dark history. We can accommodate both larger and small group tours.
Your visit can include a Great Fire of London tour section and a Great Plague tour section, as you explore the winding roads where these atrocities took place and your private London guide brings these stories to life. Today, in this same area you can visit the Bank of England and London’s financial scene while seeing Tudor houses in the heart of London that survived the fire. Don’t forget to visit the Monument to the Great Fire of London and to tour London Bridge too!
Make sure to visit St. Paul’s Cathedral and admire this incredible 300-year-old masterpiece by Christopher Wren. Inside if you are feeling brave, you can climb over 500 steps to the Golden Gallery and admire one of London’s most stunning viewpoints.
The City also borders the Tower of London, which you can enjoy. Visit the Tower of London and visit Tower Bridge on your visit to London to round off a historical experience.
A Tower of London tour would not be complete with a visit to see the Queen’s crown jewels at the Tower, of course, and seeing the magnificent Beefeaters in action. We can take you inside the Tower and St Paul’s.
