Other places included the Mosely Mural (the Battle of Cable Street), Brick Lane market, Spitalfields Market and the memorial to self-sacrifice in Postman's Park, which also contains a plaque commemorating the inspiration of Rev.John Wesley....

We had a wonderful experience on Matt's tour. We had no trouble finding the meeting point, although we did our homework beforehand. We really enjoyed Matt's easygoing tour, it had the perfect mix of historical and cultural knowledge, as well as major sites and lesser known sites. Our favorite parts of the tour were definitely seeing and learning about the... More

Matthew is a wonderful tour guide. Expert at navigating Londons streets and lots of unique knowledge. His groups have a max of 10, but ours was even smaller. We may go back tomorrow for east tour. Try to fit this tour in!

I went on the Sights of London tour with Matt. It was a 2.5 hour tour, including a 30 minute stop at the Covent Garden market for food, shopping, and entertainment. Had a good time and would recommend to anyone comfortable riding a bike. Navigating the streets of London was not difficult and Matt gave clear signals where to stop... More

Only had a couple of days in London again and wanted to see as much as we possibly could. Pre-booked Matthew, cycle tours of London, before leaving Australia for one tour but had to change to the canal tour instead due to the Tour of Britain bike race blocking off several sections of the other rides. Regardless it was very... More

We loved our Sights of London tour so much, we came back 3 days later for the Canal Tour! Was a great way to see a side of London you'd never see on foot - even in the cold! Matthew was great - a great story teller and just all round good guy. Great thing to do with teenagers.

Staying in City of London

Neighborhood Profile
City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighborhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighborhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
