Richard E.

London, England, United Kingdom

My name is Richard and I would love to show around the City of London!

When I say the 'City of London', I am referring to the original city founded by the Romans. Sometimes known as 'The Square Mile' - although actually, it is just over a square mile - it is steeped in history and is today one of the world's leading financial centres. It has been destroyed twice. First by the Great Fire of London in 1666 and then by bombs during the second world war, 1939 - 1945. The rebuilding after the fire saw the construction of Sir Christopher Wren's magnificent St Paul's Cathedral which survived the bombs during the war and became an icon, not just for Londoners but for the whole of Britain, during those troubled times.

There are so many different aspects of this city. There is social history, financial history, religious history and much more. Join me on my highlights tour as we wander through narrow alleyways unchanged since the time of Charles Dickens and discover hidden places and stories. I am a great communicator and want to share this wonderful city with you.

Above all I want you to enjoy the tour and have fun while we wander around. At the end, there are pubs full of character serving good English ale which I can point you toward if needed! It is a great city - let me be your guide to it.
