From the Tudors to the Windrush Generation, powerful tales of different times resonate throughout the city - but this is no average history lesson. From its beginnings over 2000 years ago - London was founded by the Romans - right through to today, see London’s past come to life as you visit historic landmarks. Maybe you’d like to explore the Tower of London and Shakespeare’s Globe theatre and imagine the city of Elizabethan times. Or perhaps discover what the city was like during WWII and descend into an out-of-use tube station where Londoners sheltered from the Blitz. But more than this, your host can share with you the histories that you don’t find in the British Museum, like the stories from the Black British Civil Rights movement.
Explore central London and discover the stories which helped shape London’s patchwork history. In central London, over 2000 years of history are concealed in plain sight - and most people walk right past, or over it. You could discover Aldwych tube station - disused but perfectly preserved - where Londoners hid from WWII bombings. Stroll past Cleopatra’s Needle on your way to cross the river, or head straight for the historic south bank and explore landmarks like the 1000-year-old Borough Market - via Blackfriars Bridge, which was the setting of a Black British Civil Rights march in the 80s.
