Head south in the City of London towards the river and modern day business sits side by side with some of London’s finest historical landmarks. Soaring above the city streets below, the Monument is a symbol of the Great Fire of London whilst the surrounding area sits firmly in modern day Britain with bustling offices and busy restaurants and cafes. Just a short stroll down to Tower Hill and the tourists swarm around the magnificent Tower of London, perched regally by the river’s edge. The usual tourist eateries are all present here, filled with hungry sightseers. However, cross the road to the beautiful St Katherine’s Dock with its luxurious yachts and enjoy riverside dining in a variety of restaurants and pubs. Aldgate takes you back up closer to the centre of the City, with modern day London landmark The Gherkin in one direction and the East End’s Whitechapel in the other.
