Mansion House is the official home of the Lord Mayor of the City of London.

The tour will teach you both the history of the house, and provide some information on the previous Lord Mayors and Aldermen.

The tour includes many of the best public rooms including the interior courtyard, Egyptian Hall and boardroom. You will also see its collection of 17th-century Dutch and Flemish paintings by the like of Frans Hals, Nicoleas Maes, and Jacob Ruisdael.

There should also be an opportunity to see the Lord Mayor's Sword and Mace, Fire Cup and Pearl Sword.

Craig has been on this tour himself, and thinks that it's a decent way to wile away an afternoon. It's worth a visit just to see inside the Egyptian Hall. You can read his review on his blog.

You might also like a tour of the Guildhall as well, and see the Lord Mayor in action at the monthly Common Council meeting.
