This tour takes you along some of the narrow and winding back streets of London in the search for unusual and forgotten pieces of London’s history.
Discover a piece of the original stone London Bridge, find out which part of Roman London lies inside a barber shop, discover the location of our first coffee house and locate some atmospheric old pubs tucked away out of sight.
Many of these locations are rarely visited by Londoners, let alone tourists, and you’ll be bowled over by how magical they are. From the extraordinary Leadenhall Market, to the alleyways of Cornhill, and the bombed out remains of a church this tour will leave you keen to explore the area further.
Along the way we’ll also stand in the middle of a modern architect’s heaven – with the Gherkin, Cheesegrater, Walkie Talkie and Lloyd’s building all looming over a 16th century church. One of the greatest views in London.
