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).

You will be able to:
• Visit the shady organization that runs the gaff– the City of London Corporation.
• Discover how companies like Goldman Sachs and the Bank of China get to vote every year in UK elections.
• Learn about the (often ignored) role of slavery and empire in estabishing 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.

Meeting Point

We will meet on the steps of the Royal Exchange, just in front of Bank Station.

Note
This is a draft run through of a new route - so it's free. If you enjoyed the tour you can give a voluntary donation at the end, but that's totally optional.
