London Episode 03 The City of London

Where it all began

This tour of the Square Mile, starts with some stories from its history: medieval days, the plague, the Great Fire and the subsequent rebuilding of the city which became a world centre of finance. We’ll hear from many Londoners, such as Dick Whittington, Samuel Pepys and Christopher Wren, and visit some of the places you might want to look round today, including a number of churches and such venerable institutions as the Guildhall, the Royal Exchange and Mansion House, not forgetting the Bank of England Museum.
