If you only have time for one walk around London during your holiday, then this is probably the one we'd recommend. London is such a huge city that it's impossible to see it all in one walk, but this one includes lots of interesting history and plenty of great buildings.

Highlights include the medieval Guildhall, the Lord Mayor of London's residence at Mansion House, the Bank of England, and the impressive Royal Exchange (easily the most impressive building in The City).

Craig has reviewed all of these attractions in his London blog, and you might like to work your way through it to see what they're like. Start with his review of The City and then check out his review of Leadenhall Market, the Royal Exchange, The Monument and Guildhall.

Note: If you'd like to try a much longer walk that takes in many more landmarks, then how about our self-guided walk around London's landmarks? It will take you over three hours to complete (so wear a pair of comfy shoes!) but it has the advantage of seeing everything from Big Ben and Buckingham Palace all the way over to the Tower of London and Tower Bridge.


 Guest – “where does this walk start?”

Admin – “From the City Information Centre. That's that weird angular building round the southside of St. Paul's, on the opposite side of the road, along St Paul's churchyard.”

Craig’s review – “I thought I'd just hang around The City today, the so-called "Square Mile". That's the bit inside the old city walls where all the big banks and financial institutions live.If you want to make some new friends then try catching the tube from Waterloo to Bank at half-8 in the morning -- when all the bleary-eyed businessmen and women are bustling off to work.… continued”
