It's not all bowler hats and briefcases. The Square Mile is the oldest neighbourhood in London, and on this tour we'll discover how fashion has shaped its history.

We'll stroll through the City's most prestigious shopping areas, wander down its historic alleyways, and strike a pose at an iconic shoot location as we uncover its secret roots in the rag trade.

This was a fascinating tour with a completely new to me focus on how the City worked as a shopping and manufacturing centre for clothes from Roman times. Susannah was an engaging and informative guide.
