What you can expect

Join me for a unique experience in London, where you can take stunning photos of the amazing London skyline! You will see a number of interesting and innovative architecture co-existing with Victorian buildings, Norman alleys and Roman ruins. Get ready to experience all that and more!

Join me as I take you to visit 4 rooftop locations that even local Londoners don’t know about and all with a spectacular view. Visit a panoramic terrace overlooking St Paul's Cathedral at One New Change. Stop by the skyscraper, Heron Tower where you will take a lift to the 40th floor to a walk-in bar. Go to the Sky Garden on the 35th floor of the Walkie Talkie for a 360 view over London. And your highest destination, the 52nd floor of the Shard! Here, you can enjoy a soft or hot drink at the bar while enjoying a view of the whole of London from the river Thames, London Eye, St Paul's Cathedral and to the East Canary Wharf.

This private tour is more than the views. Along the way, I'll show you hidden gems and highlights with a touch of history and economics, my specialty! I'll take you to the Bank area and through the elegant Royal Exchange, which used to be stock exchange before the digital era moved all trades on screens. Explore the area through Leadenhall Market, a former Roman basilica converted in a restaurant and shopping area and walk past icon and infamous buildings and skyscrapers such as the Gherkin, the Lloyd's, the Cheese-grater, the Scalpel and so much more!

If there is anything else you would like to see in the City, let me know, happy to accommodate any variations.

I am an economist with over 20 years' work experience in finance, 10 of which in the City. My hobbies are art and architecture, and I am so passionate that I actually founded a cultural club and an art tour organization. Please have a look at ARTwiT—Art Tours with a Theme for other bespoke and scheduled tours (artwitlondon.co.uk)."
