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.
