Ozokwenza

Discover old London and its stories! We'll start the tour at the best preserved section of our Roman Wall, discover a roman emperor and hear about London's beginnings as a city. From there I'll move you swiftly through the Dark Ages and onto the arrival of William the Conqueror and his imposing Tower of London, one of the most significant structures in the entire country.

As we move forward in time, the one constant has been the River Thames, and I'll take you to the water's edge and engage you with its extraordinary and often surprising history.

On to what Charles Dickens described as 'the gates of Ghastly Grim', where 300 victims of the 1665 plague were buried and I'll talk about the devastating impact of this disease, followed by a short walk to the monument to the 1666 Great Fire of London.

Along the way we'll race forward in time to WW2, and see a most extraordinary church whose shell still stands as if in defiance to the aerial bombardment.

From here we head to the site of the roman town hall and market place, which has now been transformed into the stunning Leadenhall Market, a magical movie location for the Harry Potter movies.

And we'll finish off in the most modern location in London, surrounded by our most iconic skyscrapers, from the Gherkin to the Cheesegrater, Lloyds Building and Scalpel. And in the midst of it all lies a 500 year old church...
Other things to note
Come out of the main exit of Tower Hill tube station. It should be pretty straightforward to find me, but feel free to give me a call if in doubt.
