London - The City (Chapter)
This is the City chapter from Lonely Planet’s London guidebook.
By day the Tower of London and St Paul’s are the City’s big draws, and the One New Change shopping mall and the new bars and restaurants atop the City’s flashiest skyscrapers have begun attracting people at off-peak times.
- walk through that treasury of history, the Tower of London, past the colourful Yeoman Warders (or Beefeaters), the spectacular Crown Jewels, the soothsaying ravens and armour fit for a very large king
- imagine the tragedy of medieval London ablaze as you climb the Monument to the Great Fire of 1666
- listen in on whispering neighbours in the dome of St Paul’s, before enjoying its far-reaching views
- restaurants & bars
