I am delighted to be delivering a virtual tour on Saturday 5th June for the Temple Bar Trust.
It is entitled ‘Money, money, money’ and is a stroll through the City of London exploring aspects of its role as one of the world’s leading financial centres.
The City of London Guides are proud to announce that their regular daily walks from the City Information Centre are starting in a limited way from 12th April.
My next walk is at 11am on Saturday 19th June Starting at the City Information Centre in St Paul’s Churchyard we will walk along the banks of the mighty Thames and we will learn about the many roles the river has played in the history of our great city – including answering the vexed question: What did the Romans ever do for us? We finish after about 90 minutes near the Monument. Cost £12 (concessions £10)
Please get in touch if you would like to talk about a possible bespoke walk for your family, friends or perhaps company or social group. You might be an organisation seeking to promote the well-being of your staff through a fun activity which can increase your ‘sense of place’ and engagement with your local neighbourhood.

I am Andy Catto – that’s me in the silly hat talking to a walking group about the history of St John’s in Clerkenwell (including the fate of the man who introduced the first poll tax!). I am a qualified* London guide and love this amazing city. I also really enjoy working with groups – aiming to do a bit of education, provide some information and, hopefully, do it all in an entertaining fashion.
So if you would like to join in a walk, maybe learn something new about London and its history, and also meet some other like-minded people, then come along to one of our walks. We will explore beyond the tourist trail, walk back in time and off the beaten track to discover the stories that built this amazing city.
See ‘Our Walks’ for details of what each tour covers and ‘Schedule of Walks’ to see the timetable of forthcoming walks. Or please email me at: email@example.com
