Every Sunday we’ll pluck just one walk from the vast London Walks repertoire and put it centre stage.

THE FAMOUS SQUARE MILE – 2,000 Years of History
11 am on Thursdays from Monument Tube, Fish Street Hill exit
This is the great classic London Walk. It explores the very heart of the City - the most historic part of the capital. Threading their way through an intricate network of narrow alleys and cobble-stone lanes, Tom, Judy and Fiona chronicle the 2,000 years of London's rich and tumultuous history. And illustrate it by drawing upon everything from street names to ancient customs to the frozen music of London's great buildings, among which are the ruins of the Roman Temple of Mithras, the Bank of England, the Lord Mayor's Mansion House, and ancient Guildhall. (The walk includes, whenever possible, a visit inside Guildhall!)
The Famous Square Mile Walk takes place every Thursday at 11 am and every Sunday at 10.30 am
Meet Tom, Judy, Fiona or Simon outside the main exit – the Fish Street Hill exit – of Monument Tube.
A London Walk costs £9 – £7 concession. To join a London Walk, simply meet your guide at the designated tube station at the appointed time. Details of all London Walks can be found at www.walks.com.
