Dr Johnson, C17th City of London resident
The City of London, a city within a city, has nearly two thousand years of extraordinary history, traditions and architecture all packed into just one square mile.
Join me, Emma, a qualified City of London Guide, as I take you on a walk that will give you a greater understanding of our culture and history and what and who has made this City great.
I will entertain you with many fascinating tales and introduce you to numerous unforgettable characters that have lived and worked within the most powerful square mile in the world.
The City tells the story of Roman traders and medieval merchants, kings and queens, rebels and traitors. It’s the home of Chaucer, Shakespeare, Samuel Pepys and Charles Dickens, Jane Austen and Agatha Christie, a city shaped by architects such as the great Sir Christopher Wren, three generations of Gilbert-Scotts and Sir Norman Foster.
A walk around the City of London will give you an insight into how London, as we know it today, became such a thriving Metropolis. It all started in the City!
I offer bespoke guided walks tailored to your interests and requirements. My depth of knowledge and passion for the City of London will make this a unique, fascinating and enjoyable experience.
