Welcome to the City of London!
A City within a city, in a country within a country.
As we will walk across the city you will see how modern architecture seamlessly mixes with classical buildings. We will stop to admire St. Pauls's Cathedral, the GuildHall, and the Bank of England, as well as the modern architecture masterpieces such as The Gherkin and Lloyds of London.
More importantly, you will hear the stories of the major events that shaped the development of the city. We will also talk about old medieval traditions that are still practiced today and how they have impacted the modern world.
