Want to know how the financial crisis really happened?Angry at bankers and politicians for what's been going on since the crisis?Interested in the hidden history of London?Forget Jack the Ripper and the London Dungeons, we show you the murky side of the capital’s more recent past.If you want to know how London came to be at the heart of capitalism, and the recent financial crisis, then join us on a tour. We have 3 tours running every month:- The City of London- Canary Wharf- MayfairOur tours are thoroughly researched so you can expect plenty of hard facts, but we try not to make it too heavy – there’s lots of lighter moments along the way. You don’t have to know lots about politics or economics. We’ll adjust the tour depending on who comes along. And often the most interesting things you’ll learn will be from other people on the tour…
