We will take you through Roman London, the Guilds, the Civil War, British Empire and WWII as we take you through the landmarks that make the City of London what it is. By the end of the tour you’ll see that the relationship that London has had with the rest of the world has been crucial to its history and that the River Thames and everything that comes in and out of it, has represented all of the changing tides of London’s fortune.
