On this tour visitors will experience the Square Mile, the unique area which originally lay within the first walls of the city 2000 years ago. Now one of the most important financial districts on the planet, this part of London hides ancient relics from its Roman heritage amongst the modern landmarks of enterprise and industry which are waiting to be discovered. Having withstood the Great Plague, the Great fire and the Blitz of World War Two, this resilient part of London bears the marks of its unique history around every corner, which are easily overlooked by the untrained eye. Join Matt and explore monumental locations such as Aldgate, Bishopsgate, Ludgate and Moorgate teeming with secluded churches, lively markets and extraordinary pieces of architecture, and learn about the colourful history of London’s oldest and most unusual districts.
