When we think of stories of royalty, it's often Westminster that comes to mind. However there are many tales to be told in the Square Mile of royal events, various monarchs' relationship with the City, and some who tried (more than others) to change and influence it.
On our walk we'll hear about a royal debt that went up in smoke, King John's battle with a City baron, the nun who dared to challenge Henry VIII, and find out if the Queen really needs to ask permission to enter the City (and see a golden state coach that isn't hers!).
Meeting point is outside Blackfriars Underground Station, Queen Victoria Street. Please check travel options at the Transport for London Journey Planner.
