Exploring The Square Mile

The City of London is nicknamed The Square Mile and is famed for its quirky traditions and unique governance.   It is where London all started; where the Romans landed and where trade and commerce have flourished ever since.  This walk will showcase the variety of fascinating things found in this compact area.  From wonderful Wren churches, to the history of Livery Companies  - from what has emerged from bomb sites to the modern City - Join me to have your eyes opened to this exciting part of London.

Treasures of Mayfair

Famous for being top whack on the Monopoly Board, Mayfair is synonymous with exclusivity.  Everything from food to fashion to high-end celebrity hangouts is luxurious.  However, the place that started as muddy fields has more to it than high property prices and rents.  Behind the glittering shop fronts lies a world of stunning churches, beautiful architecture and delightful gardens; a world where reputations were made and lost and where wealth and sleaze lived side by side.  Come and immerse yourself in this elegant part of town - it is really lovely.
