Event description

Description

Have you ever wondered how the city works, but got put off by all the boring financial blurb? Well this is the tour for you. Come and explore the City of London. It's basically a walking tour of capitalism (with jokes).

On the tour you will:

  • Discover some parts of British history that aren't covered in any of the museums in London.
  • Get a jargon free introduction to the economy - about debt, trade, and other stuff.
  • Learn about the (often ignored) role of slavery and empire in establishing the banking system we use today
  • Understand why for centuries, money flowed into the City of London, and why today so much of it is disappering offshore.


Note
The tour guide is preparing this tour for a comedy festival so is trying out a new route and some new material, this is the reason the tour is free. If you enjoyed the tour you can give a voluntary donation at the end, but that's totally optional.


Meeting Point

We will meet on the steps of the Royal Exchange, just in front of Bank Station. If you are coming out of Bank Station it is Exit 3. Your guide, Susie, will be holding an umbrella. Photo of meeting point on steps of royal exchange
