A walking tour in the Square Mile with Barry Carter, a fully qualified CLGLA tour guide.
Guided walking tours are the best possible way to explore the rich heritage and places of interest in the City of London. You can learn and see much more on a walk than you can by passing landmarks on a bus or in a taxi.
The City is steeped in history with many sites to explore on foot. Varying styles of architecture, churches dating back to medieval times, civic halls, Livery halls, narrow winding alleyways, ultra modern office buildings, over 150 gardens and open spaces sometimes hidden where you least expect to find them and a multitude of public sculpture and monuments.
This walk has no specific theme but aims to take the group around a selection of unconnected stops from the City’s 2000 year history including the Roman and medieval as well as more modern sites of recent architects.
The walk will include some of the more well known structures in the City, along with some slightly less familiar but equally interesting sights. Walks normally last between 90 minutes and 2 hours and are priced at £7.00 per person.
St. Paul’s Cathedral (exterior only)
Paternoster Square and Temple Bar
Bastion High walk
The Guildhall Complex (Including interior of Great Hall if not in use)
Guildhall Art Gallery (including the Roman Amphitheatre)
Plus many more.
After visiting the remains of the preserved Roman Amphitheatre we will part company and you will be free wander around the rest of the gallery.
There are toilet facilities, seating and a cloakroom available in the gallery.
Please note that sometimes building work or other unforeseen circumstances may make it necessary to substitute some stops.
