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.

Talk about A walk around The City’s Top 10 sights

 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.”
