Join us for a historical jaunt around the UK’s smallest city, as we tell the glamorous, gruesome and at times downright weird tale of financial capitalism from the Middle Ages to the present day. After all, the ‘Square Mile’ of the City of London is the closest thing there is to the film set of Capitalism: The Movie.
On the tour you will:
- Learn how the City of London really is a city within a city, even a state within a state, and acts as a law unto itself.
- Visit the ancient body that runs the City – the City of London Corporation – and discover why the Queen herself has to ask its permission to enter.
- Hear the swashbuckling tales of some of the City’s most renowned rebels and freedom-fighters.
- Discover how companies like Goldman Sachs and the Bank of China get to vote every year in UK elections…
