London Statues Come To Life walking tour
July 14, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm$10
London has stood in this spot for some two thousand years, it has grown from a small trading port to becoming one of the largest cities in the world, from which an entire Empire was once commanded. The streets of London are littered with hundreds, even thousands, of different statues and monuments. Each of these has their own place in the history of this city, this country and this world. These men and women that are represented on the streets of London are a standing testament to their great and terrible achievements.
This tour aims to take you through some of the most iconic parts of London, following the statues and the stories they have to tell. From Leicester Square, through Trafalgar Square, down Whitehall and all the way to the Houses of Parliament. Every day we walk past these effigies, some we know but many we don’t, yet each has a tale to amaze and astonish and we aim to tell them all.
Come follow us on this engaging tour and meet the people that shaped the world we live in.
