They say always look up, yet most walks have an altitude problem. Not this one! Clocks and sundials, statues, weather-vanes and a hundred unique stories lurk high above pavement-level, out of sight and out of mind. Let your eyes do the walking on a safe, street-level tour offering a glimpse of the City as you’ve never seen it before.
Above one of the City’s most famous streets, a three-metre dragon hungrily watches something. What is it lining up for lunch?
The golden dragon, above St Mary-le-Bow on Cheapside, hungrily looks at a huge golden grasshopper on top of the Royal Exchange, a short distance to the east. The grasshopper is the symbol of Tudor financier Sir Thomas Gresham who funded the first Royal Exchange.
