This Private London Walking Tour begins at St Paul's Cathedral, London's magnificent Baroque church which has seen the wedding of Prince Charles and Lady Diana, and the funerals of Lord Nelson and Winston Churchill.

The imposing dome of the cathedral has been a symbol of London throughout history, not least during the blitz of the second world war when it stood framed by the fires raging in the city. The dome is second in size only to St Peter's in Rome. A church has stood on the site since the 7th century and the present building, the work of Christopher Wren, was completed in 1708 after 32 years of work.

The impressive interior contains mementos and monuments to many of Britain's heroes including Nelson, Wellington and Churchill. The famous Whispering Gallery is well worth the climb and the Golden Gallery (530 steps) provides a wonderful view of London.

Continue the walking tour to Guildhall passing by some of the old institutions of London, such as the halls of the livery companies. The Guildhall has been the seat of civic government of the city since being granted its first charter by William the Conqueror in 1067.

The building was badly damaged in the fire of London and rebuilt by 1669. In 1940 history repeated itself when the blitz caused extensive damage to the building which was restored and completed again by 1954. The building reflects its history with medieval parts and an 18th century facade.
