Description

Go back to the very beginning of London’s two millennia history in the City on this semi-private tour, welcoming up to ten people. Your local guide will take you on a 2.5 hour trek through the site of a Roman settlement that became the epicenter of one of the world’s most bustling cities and financial centers.

After greeting your guide at Temple Station for 2pm,  you'll follow in the footsteps of the Romans, who built the nearly 2000 year old wall still visible today. Wander through this tangle of hidden sights to stumble upon the 12th-century Temple Church, home to the Knights Templar.

Fast-forward through history to discover the medieval Tower of London, home to the beefeaters. Learn about the great fire of 1666 that decimated the city at the Monument before marveling at the domed masterpiece, St. Paul’s Cathedral, rebuilt after the tragedy.

You’ll see picturesque views along the Thames, the river spanned by the iconic 19th-century Tower Bridge and more modern Millennium Bridge. Your energetic guide will bring London’s long history to life as you weave through the skyscrapers that hide some of its best kept stories.
