The City of London: Bringing the best in thought, to the finest in history


We have oft heard that stock prices follow a random walk. In case not, see below -

We'd like to relive this debate differently. Throw in some liberal arts majors, a Friday evening, chaperoning by a trained historian, and more than 2,000 years of history and you've got yourself an experience to remember - a Random Walk through London's famous square mile. 
 
A tour around the historic city, culminating in a historical pub, where you can appreciate camaraderie, both historic and new-found. 
 
Selected highlights of the walk include - 
 
-  The Roman remains and the early history of London
-  The Bank of England
-  London's first coffee house
-  The Royal Exchange
-  Lloyds of London
-  Coat of arms of the City
-  London and trading
-  Guildhall
-  The Livery Halls
-  Leadenhall Market
-  Mansion House
