Ringing World Centenary Day – City walks

Saturday 26th March 2011

A very important reason for visiting the City of London is to see its wonderful churches, often hidden away in alleys and lanes. Our professionally qualified City Guides are trained to give visitors an insight into the City’s glorious heritage of fine churches. Many were designed by the great architect, Sir Christopher Wren, but thankfully some still remain from before the Great Fire of London.

The City church walks will also include views of some of the great financial institutions, such as the Bank of England, Lloyd’s of London, the Baltic Exchange and the home of the Lord Mayor of the City of London, Mansion House. The City is also internationally renowned for an increasing number of distinguished modern buildings and the walks will include some of these, not least the Gherkin (Swiss Re Building).

Do please take up this special opportunity of a walk to hear and see these old and new treasures.
