After visiting All Hallows, the City’s oldest church, we show you the Monument to the Great Fire of London and reveal how the City was transformed by this terrible event. We’ll then bring you bang up to date with the modern Lloyd’s building, then to the heart of the financial district. There we’ll tell you why the Bank of England has so few windows and who founded the Royal Exchange.

We’ll then move on to the famous Guildhall and tell you about the ancient Livery Companies at the Goldsmith’s Hall. You will discover St Paul’s and the great deception that lies behind it. Finally we take you to the famous Tate Modern art gallery and explain why the Globe Theatre is where it is.
