As part of the Platinum Jubilee celebrations Six in the City, a group of qualified and experienced City of London guides, are organizing walks around the City throughout the year introducing visitors to stories about the Queens of England and the City of London. We will visit many different parts of the City introducing visitors to some of the important sites, while recounting stories to do with many of the Queens of England including Matilda, Eleanor of Castile, Mary I and Elizabeth I and of course our very own Queen. Elizabeth II. Join us as we discover more about the processional route on the river of Anne Boleyn, as she made her way to her coronation, and of her trip a few years later as she made her way to the Tower as a prisoner. Listen closely as we recount the tale of Lady Jane Grey Queen for just nine days. Discover what Boudicca, Queen of the Iceni did to London in AD 60 and what happened to Queen Isabella at the end of her life as she was laid to rest in Christchurch Greyfriars.

We start our walk close to the Tower of London at the entrance to Tower Hill Tube and end the walk at St Paul’s close to the Millennium Bridge.
