This walk will take you around the City within the old London wall. It is a long walk but can be done in two parts: from Monument to St Pauls and from St Pauls to Tower Hill.
You will wander through some of the oldest established parts of London and see both the start and end points of the Great Fire. Other attractions include the Bank of England, St Bart’s hospital (the oldest in London) and the Tower of London. You will also see where London’s most famous mayor, Dick Whittington, lived and was buried.
Allow 5 hours in total.
A weekend day is the best time to do this walk as there will be less traffic and people. However, you may find that some of the smaller, out of the way cafes and pubs are closed.
