Description

Join me on this  for an hour-long walk through the beautiful streets and rich history of London.

We will commence our live-streamed, interactive Online Experience from Smithfields; I will guide you through the area and tell you stories associated with its long and bloody history. Together, we will see the place where William Wallace the Braveheart was killed over 700 years ago, and learn the story of how he came to be regarded as a Scottish national hero. As we walk ahead, I will point out the oldest parish church and the oldest hospital in London, and we will take a look at the spot where the famous fictional detective Sherlock Holmes fell to his "end". 

The Great Fire of London, which raged through the city in the year 1666, played an important role in the shape the city has grown to take in the years since. During our tour, I will also show you the street corner where this fire ended. Then, I will take you through a former notorious prison that today functions as the most well-known court in the land: the Old Bailey Central Criminal Court.

 We will stop at St Pauls Cathedral where I will tell you about the importance of this monument during one of the darkest episodes in the history of the City. We will also visit the stairwell made famous by the charming Diana Spencer on her wedding day, when she went up them a Lady and came down a Princess.
We will see other monuments as we head to the Millennium Bridge to appreciate some monumental views of the London skyline over the River Thames. To end our tour on a picture-perfect note, I will show you the most popular view of St. Paul's Cathedral from this side of the river - a sight that you are sure to cherish for years to come!
