This enjoyable walk will take you around some of the City's best sights -- including the Bank of England, the medieval Guildhall, the Lord Mayor of London's official residence at Mansion House, and the historic Royal Exchange.

If you only have time for one walk around London during your holiday, then this is probably the one that we'd pick. We have plenty more listed on our page of guided walks around London.

Craig has reviewed all of these attractions in his London blog, and you might like to read his day out in The City as well.

Note: The walk will start at the City Information Centre opposite St Paul's Cathedral (by St. Paul's Church Yard), and will last approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes.

 Guest – “does the tour include the interior of the buildngs”

Admin – “That'a a good question. We've tried to email them to ask, but unfortunately their email address doesn't seem to work (.cityoflondonguides.com/contact). It just keeps on bouncing back.We will keep on trying.I doubt that it does, though. There are separate tours available for Mansion House and Guildhall (Craig has been on them both, and the Guildhall one is well worth doing). They are both working buildings, and you can't really do them in the short time available. They might go into the Royal Exchange though, because that's basically just a posh shopping centre.But we will keep on trying to contact them and let you know.”
