Let’s face it – London just wouldn’t be the exciting, energetic place it is without its fantastic past. It’s a city where you can turn corners and come face to face with streets that played silent witness to Roman invasions, the Great Fire of London, the plague and much more. Its recorded history dates back 2,000 years. It’s also an exciting modern city where past and present sit comfortably alongside each other.

London is a city for walking and it’s in the back streets and hidden corners that it reveals its complex background. By all means see ‘the sights’ – the big ticket places. But don’t forget the gems that are tucked away. Take a walk with the ultimate Londoner and see a different view.
