In the Middle Ages the City of London was the centre of commerce and trade.

Many of these streets and passageways that we still walk down today, follow the same layout as the medieval City.

Step into the medieval City of London and discover the people and places that defined the Square Mile in the Middle Ages by walking this Self-guided Walk.
