The square mile: From Roman Londinium to modern London.


A city of a thousand faces of history. London was originally called Londinium, the square mile as it is known today was sculpted into the city by generations of successive invaders, each in turn becoming part of the fabric of this great city. the old city eventually merged with the separate growing city of Royal London known as Westminster to become the Capital as we know it today.

On this tour we will wander through great fires, plague and the blitz, through lanes and streets that have survived since Roman times. We will visit ancient churches rebuilt over successive generations, Roman amphitheatres, it's great bridges and the London secrets and views perfect for those photos to take home with you.

From it's earliest foundations to the skyscrapers it is famous for today; This tour is a perfect compliment to the city of Westminster tour.

A Recent Review of this tour

I booked the 3 hr walking tour of London with Nicholas for myself and my family. Nicholas was waiting promptly at 3pm in our hotel lobby. The tour itself was excellent, but Nicholas' knowledge and personality really made it a memorable event for myself and my family. Nicholas hit all the expected sights and many areas we would not have thought to see. Of the 5 days we spent in London, my wife and son said the tour with Nicholas was the best sightseeing we did. I highly recommend Nicholas for touring.
