2000 years of history are contained within the one square mile occupied by the City of London. Take an alternative route through its hidden gardens and atmospheric alleys to see the City in a different way. From the devastation of the Great Fire of 1666 and the Blitz of the 1940s, the City's famous financial institutions have risen again, like a phoenix from the ashes. Along the way they have influenced our culture and our language. Medieval buildings jostle with modern architecture, Charles Dickens speaks across the centuries to Harry Potter and a large golden grasshopper adorns the 'exchange'. Come and discover this extraordinary place!

Want to see more of the City? Add the following City Extension and really make a day of it!

The City Extension - From Ancient to Modern

A Roman temple, a Wren church, a memorial to heroic self-sacrifice, a street of buildings by leading contemporary architects, Norman Foster, Richard Rogers and Terry Farrell, plus the site of Braveheart's execution - all part of this varied afternoon walk that develops the theme of ancient to modern in today's City of London. Why was a City church moved to America? Where did the postmen eat their sandwiches? Why is Smithfield associated with blood? This walk will answer all these questions and more!
