Occupy Tour of the City of London

Steps of St. Paul's
Thought you knew London? Think again. Welcome to England’s smallest, most mysterious and most powerful city – where Goldman Sachs votes in local elections, the Mayor is chosen by the Worshipful Company of Fishmongers, and the police are reigning Olympic champions…
Don’t say we’re not ambitious: our aim on this tour is to show you the whole history of financial capitalism, from the Middle Ages to the present, in two hours. In contrast to our Canary Wharf and Mayfair tours, this tour tells an older narrative, interweaving the story of our current crisis with anecdotes and turning points from the past. Of course we can’t do it all, but we’ll try our best.
Tours start on the steps of St Paul’s – home of the original Occupy London camp – and finish near Liverpool Street. Tours last about two hours. See www.occupytours.org for more information.
