Occupy London Tours: City of London
Date(s) - 21/09/2013
2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Steps of St. Paul's
21st September. 2pm. Approx. 2 hours. Meet at St Paul’s Cathedral steps. Ends opposite Liverpool St Station.
We tell the story of the UK’s smallest city (really!), the history of money in the heart of London and the Square mile’s role in the financial crisis of 2007/8. Find out just what the Corporation of London actually is, why the Queen has to ask permission to enter the City and why the ‘Black-Scholes equation’ matters to you!
The tours are designed to be informative, entertaining and – most importantly – accessible. Our aim to is to enable people from London, the UK and all over the world to engage with the financial system and its impact on their lives. We de-mystify this secretive and badly understood world through colourful stories, exciting histories, rock-solid facts and figures, pavement art – and even our very own collateralised-debt-obligation rap (!). The tours offer a critique of the status quo without being politically affiliated.
Attendees often join us in the pub afterwards to carry on the conversation.
