Your tour will start on the steps of St Paul's Cathedral, Sir Christopher Wren's Baroque masterpiece that rose from the ashes of the great fires, bombardments, riots and more that London suffered throughout the centuries. Your journey continues to the Guildhall, one of England's famous medieval halls, parts of which date from 1411. You'll visit the Square Mile (London's financial district) and walk to Threadneedle Street, home since 1734 to the Bank of England, which preserves not only gold bars but also the legend of modern finance. Next, climb 311 steps to the top of the Monument (also known as the Monument to the Great Fire of London); this popular Roman column stands near Pudding Lane, where the Great Fire started in 1666. Standing at 200 feet (61 meters) tall, the Monument boasts a spectacular view over the city and the River Thames. Leaving the Monument behind, you will travel to the 19th century as you follow the footsteps of Jack the Ripper. Pass by London’s oldest markets while you explore the neighborhood where Jack famously murdered prostitutes in 1888. Two hours of walking around London will leave you hungry! Luckily, you’ll have a delicious lunch of authentic Indian curry to finish your tour. Dine in a family-run restaurant on Brick Lane, and enjoy one of London’s most popular dishes.
