TOUR DESCRIPTION

Welcome to the “Square Mile!” This tour will take you through the oldest streets in London – from the Roman settlement 2,000 years ago - to the newest (and tallest!) buildings in all of Europe.

Starting with a stroll along the ancient underground river Fleet, with a mid-point stop at Christopher Wren’s masterpiece, St. Paul's Cathedral, and a grand finale at Her Majesty’s Fortress, The Tower of London, this tour manages to squeeze two millennia worth of time into one easy-to-handle 2 and a half hour jam-packed excursion!
