There’s no getting away from the fact that the City of London 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 crazy 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 weird we will go in search of the lady who travelled by zebras, the doctor who fell in love with laxatives, the prime minister who was a sun god and hear about the most mad ceremonies continuing to this day. Certainly a tour off the tourist trail, we’ll focus on the old alleyways in one of the most atmospheric and unknown parts of central London, passing by hidden pubs and church yards, keeping an eye on the unexpected as we roam.

Highlights

  • Discover London’s oldest and most magical livery hall
  • Find out where David Hasselhoff drinks
