Mint Tower Of London Gives You A Fresh Look At The City
The Tower of London, with the City lurking behind it
It was only last week that Mint Tower of London caught our eye with its appealing-to-the-bosses 45 minute lunch, but now we’re looking at it slightly more fondly, since it’s launching a walking tour of the City of London.
The tours are led by Geoff Boyd, a qualified local guide, and will take in sights like the Bank of England, Royal Exchange and All Hallows By The Tower – the oldest church in the City, where Samuel Pepys went to check out the Great Fire of London – to the Thames, London’s first (17th century) coffee house, and Leadenhall Market, where Harry Potter was filmed.
It’s a brilliant idea, as the City’s one of the most fascinating – but also overlooked by tourists – areas of London. So, Mint, we’re totally with you on this one.
Tours last 90 minutes and cost £8 for groups of 10 or more, £10 for groups of five to nine, and £12 for less than five. Reception staff will arrange it for you.
