Wander the medieval passageways & get lost in the City

London, Greater London

Navigate your way through the intriguing streets of the old City and embrace its quirky nature.

London is one of the few large British centres to retain its medieval street pattern: behind the hustle and bustle of the busy roads, you'll find many narrow streets, passages and courtyards as you wander the wonderfully irregular streets.

Enjoy journeying down the many fun shortcuts and routes that take you away from main roads, see the streets named for their trade (Poultry, Bread Lane, Milk Street), and embrace the opportunity to get lost and discover something off the beaten track.  You never know what you might discover…
