About this event

Turn back the clock 2000 years and join us as we trace the journey of the City of London, from the arrival of Julius Caesar and its roots as a square mile trading village along the River Thames, all the way to becoming the financial capital of Europe, home to dozens of the quirkiest glass sky scrapers on Earth.

Along the way, you will hear stories of the Viking occupation, William the Conqueror's Norman Conquest, the construction of London's own medieval fortress, the devastation of Great Fire, the destruction of the Blitz, captured perfectly by a bombed out church, and the resilience and bravery of the people who lived through it and so much more!

Nowhere else in London is the clash of ancient crumbling icons and trailblazing modern architecture so obvious, with huge skyscrapers and historic 12th century churches standing proudly, shoulder to shoulder.

How can one self-governing little square mile, with ancient laws created by its own council and imposed by its own police force, stand so separately to everything around it?
