Join us for a walk through the old town of the City of London and in just two and a half hours you can experience the most significant moments in the history of this ancient city of 2000 years. From the hand of an expert guide, you will know transcendental facts of the British Empire, like the Germanic irruptions, the invasion of the Normans and the Roman settlements; essential to understand what formed the British Culture.

All of that created the spirit of London, a city that became the financial capital of the world and a hub of creativity, culture and knowledge.

Among the impressive sites included in the route of this Tour is the visit to the medieval castle of London, a magnificent building that has had innumerable uses in the last thousand years. There is also the extraordinary Temple Church, the place where the history of the Knights Templar began.

You will also visit one of the oldest and most famous pubs in London, located in a complex framework that mixes skyscrapers with narrow alleys of medieval times. In this oldest part of the city, full of contrast between modern and medieval times, you will learn about the person who brought London back to live after a terrible fire that almost destroyed it forever.
