In Focus – Lombard Street

Bank tube station, London (exit 1, on the corner of Poultry and Princes Street)

Guided by Simon W.

Streets Ahead! More trail blazing by the best urban walking tour guides on the planet. In Focus walks are an extremely detailed look – "what I love about London Walks is the degree of granularity you get" (as that American visitor memorably put it) – at the most famous streets and squares of London. And their tributaries. Today's In Focus walk explores Lombard Street the very heart of the financial district. This is Bankland – today and hundreds of years ago. All that got started here. And part and parcel of that money makes the wheels London go round story, fab tributaries where, for example, the Stock Exchange got started, coffee was first drunk, etc. Eye-watering, dizzying convergences, cohabitations, contrsts. The Lombard Street In Focus walk has been created and is curated (guided) by that team of star young Blue Badge and prize winning guides, actors Simon W. and Fiona.
