This Funzing Experience:

Join Chronicles Tours and explore the history of London's eastern fringe - the world surrounding, and beyond, the Roman wall. Starting and ending within the shadow of the famous Tower of London, hear tales ranging from the 2nd century AD up to the Second World War and beyond. Along the way, we will meet murderers and anarchists, and hear tales of executions and espionage.

It sounds fun, and it really is.


This tour lasts an hour and a half, starting at Tower Hill station (circle and district lines) and ends close to the same station.
