Tour description

A walk of contrasts to explore the origins of London!

Join this tour and discover how, when and why London was born and what were the factors that led it to be the Capital of the United Kingdom! This tour is a walk through time through the most emblematic buildings, from the primitive Roman city to the financial center of London.

On the tour we will pass by the Tower of London , one of the oldest fortresses found in the city, which has been growing and changing its form and function throughout history. On the banks of the Thames we can admire the most famous bridge in London, Tower Bridge , built during the Industrial Revolution and located before the beginning of the City limits.

We will visit the center of power in The City, where the Bank of England and the City Hall are located, and then we will go to Guildhall, the center of London Corporations since the Middle Ages.

We will end our tour at the Cathedral of Saint Paul , which with its majestic dome will not leave you indifferent.

We will explore together:

  • Tower of London
  • Tower Bridge
  • Ruins of Saint Dunstan in the East Church
  • Monument to the Great Fire
  • Leadenhall Market
  • The Royal Exchange
  • Mansion House
  • bank of england
  • San Pablo's cathedral

Andrés es uno de los mejores guías con los que he tenido el placer de coincidir. Un auténtico profesional y un entusiasta. Conserva la esencia original de los Freetour de hace más de 10 años, donde gracias a gente como él y en pequeños grupos de menos de 15 personas se disfrutaba de los rincones más especiales de las ciudades. Lamentablemente a día de hoy debido a la masificación de muchos tours por culpa de los grandes portales que venden los free tours por internet es difícil encontrar una experiencia tan especial como la de hoy. Mi más sincera enhorabuena a aquellos guías como Andrés, que siguen manteniendo la esencia original de los free tours haciendo de cada tour una inmersión en la historia que nos cuentan.

Andrés es un guía fantástico, todo muy agradable y entretenido. El tour es muy ameno y es excelente para descubrir una parte algo menos turística de Londres y con una historia impresionante!
