Curiosities of the City, The Alternative City of London Highlights Tour

London's smallest statue?

The City of London is home to many famous attractions including St Paul's Cathedral, the medieval Guildhall (the City's town hall), the Bank of England (the nation's bank), the Mansion House (where the Lord Mayor of the City of London resides) and the Monument (the memorial to the Great Fire of London of 1666),  and all of which  are included in the tour and are extremely photogenic.

Curiosities of the City is an alternative bespoke Highlights walking tour which has specifically been designed to showcase the area's famous sights alongside some of its less well known and quirkier ones. Many of the things you'll see are not included in regular guide books, they involve exploring back streets, alleyways and courtyards and can be easily missed unless you know where to go. One of my favourites features is the charming statue of the two mice with a piece of cheese, featured in the photo above. 

She devils

Curiosities of the City is an extended three hour walking tour which is designed to go at your pace, giving you time to soak up the atmosphere and stop and take photos. It draws on my extensive knowledge to tell the story of the history of the City of London in a fun and engaging way. The tour includes quirky buildings, such as the one above with the She devils, secret gardens and hidden alleyways.

Magnificent market

The Curiosities of the City bespoke walking tours are popular with individuals and small groups looking for an in - depth exploration of the City of London. It's been designed so it is equally suitable for first time visitors to the City who want to ensure they cover all the key sights as well as individuals who are re - visting the area and are looking to discover the unconventional and the unusual.
