“The Story of London”

Join four of our top flight Blue Badge Tour guides on a journey back in time

What was it really like to be a merchant in the wheeling dealing medieval city? Or a lady-in-waiting at the Court of St James?

What was considered to be a culinary delicacy in a well-to-do Georgian household? and how did those Elizabethan Londoners divert themselves from the hardships of their everyday toil?

The Story of London explores how the city and its people shaped one another in this fascinating programme of virtual tours. Each century builds on the stories that have already been introduced.

Why not travel back in time through London from the comfort of your home in the company of Fiona, Russell, Simon and Karen.
