There’s no getting away from the fact that the ancient Square Mile is pretty odd. It has peculiar traditions and bewildering ceremonies which have been taking place for centuries and a deep seated individuality rooted in nearly a millennium of self-rule.

We have unravelled the most whacky of these customs, and also found physical evidence tucked away in the old streets and courtyards which offers up the most extraordinary stories.

Focusing on the bizarre and wonderful, we will go in search of a pair of devils, a church mummy, unicorns and Shakespeare’s local pub.

If you want to explore a different side to London – dare we say a more colourful side – which you won’t find on the tourist trail, and also see some magnificent old churches, monuments, architecture and pubs, then this tour will exceed all expectations!

Tour starts by Queen Anne statue at front of St Paul’s Cathedral at 1.30pm and finishes at Leadenhall Market at 3pm.
