City of London Mystery Tour

City of London Mystery Tour

City of London CityExplorer® £89

Packing & Postage FREE*



The City of London CityExplorer® Mystery Tour is great for visitors to the City of London - especially couples or families on a city break or day out, tourists or any small group of up to 5 people.

London is crammed with famous historic buildings, countless monuments and incredible museums and galleries. Its quiet squares, explorable alleyways and large parks give Europe's largest city an unmatched charisma.

London always offers something new and there are always lots of things for adults or children to see and do.

From finance to fish and lawyers to livery companies, the City of London or “square mile” is the original London built by the Romans 2,000 years ago. Today, the City of London is the business heartbeat of the capital, Monday to Friday. Medieval churches and historic pubs jostle among a myriad of alleyways with modern skyscrapers that are icons of the world's greatest financial district.

The City of London mystery tour is a self-guided sightseeing travel guide with a twist that helps you explore what the City of London has to offer.

The route you take depends on your answers to a set of clues, questions and puzzles around the City of London that can be tackled in any order.

There's no tour bus, no annoying headphones, no tour guide and no strangers to sit next to. Instead, we supply you with a map and a series of conundrums that send you on a journey of discovery of the City of London's past and present.

Your route could take you to see the Bank of England, Tower of London, the iconic 'gherkin' office building, remains of London's original city wall, Leadenhall Market, St Paul's Cathedral and more - but what you actually end up seeing is up to your clue cracking and puzzle solving abilities!

Wherever you go, it's a fun way to get your bearings, enjoy some sightseeing, discover hidden corners, pick up interesting facts along the way and start to get a flavour of the history, architecture and people of London's prime business district.

The City of London CityExplorer® Mystery Tour is set up ready for you to do independently. The mystery tour's unique flexible format means that you can choose where to start and finish and how long you want to take - so that it fits with your schedule, your other activities and where you're staying.
