This experience is weatherproof. Join a two-hour journey to discover London's history through stories of money, trade, and power. We will use the City as a theatre to talk about money: from Roman times to modern times. There are two parts of the experience (1) How the City made its Money (2) How the Money made its City. Part (1) is storytelling in time: how London grew its trade from small businesses into a corporation that changed the world. We will visit a museum of Roman times, an exchange square, a coffee house and a former bank office of Victorian times. Part (2) looks at the City's urban planning: how it drew inspirations from the world to deal with heritage, social responsibility, equality, and identity. We will visit a market, a rooftop garden, and an urban oasis. The experience ends at a street food market. For families, kids can take on a special mission: 'Dragon Hunt in the City'! to spot the dragons during the journey. The experience is designed for individuals, couples, families or groups. In two hours, we go through a journey of 2000 years, exploring answers to the question: what money can and can't do.
I create fun and engaging cultural experiences with a mission to help people experience new cultures with comfort and confidence. My partnership with city businesses and governers ensures my guests gain an insider's point of view throughout this experience. I am grateful to historians and resources from the BBC, British Library, New Castle University, University of Glasgow, numerous museums and galleries in London. They inspired me with this experience.
