Explore the St Paul's district with two self-guided heritage walks with a treasure hunt theme. Discover St Paul's's "hidden treasures" whilst having a fun day out with family and friends!
St Paul's is in The City of London, close to London's financial district. But this walk is not about banks, it's about one of Britain's most dazzling cathedrals, immersed in history. It's about a celebrated hospital, Smithfield's livestock market, Bow Bells, the gorgeous Guildhall, and the River Thames. This is an area of London few will know well, but experience it and you'll feel afterwards you know London that much better.

1. St Paul's Cathedral to City of London Guildhall - 1.5 miles / 2.4 kms
First skirt St Paul’s cathedral to soak up its majesty, before diving into the hustle and bustle of the City of London. Here there’s something for everyone – quiet, enclosed courtyards, busy arcades, streets with lively bars and restaurants, and people rushing around. See also a famous hospital, a meat market, almshouses, ancient churches, museums, delightful gardens, the spectacular Guildhall, and much, much more.
2. City of London Guildhall to Millennium Bridge - 1 mile / 1.6 kms
From the shiny white Guildhall, visit the streets where Prime Ministers worked, famous men and women were born, and Dick Whittington lived. Pass Bow Church, heart of the Cockney area. Along the way catch glimpses of St Paul’s cathedral, before finishing your walk at the Millennium Bridge. Here you can stop and watch the Thames below, or cross to the Tate Modern, and the other attractions of the South Bank.
Each booklet has a page dedicated to the history of the town and 2 pages summarising each walk with suggestions on what to visit along the way. Walk 1 has 21 clues & walk 2 has 14 - both with detailed directions to follow. There are interesting stories about important people, places & events along the way; detailed instructions on how to find a clue if you're stuck; and a comprehensive map with the routes marked on.

"The walk's called St Paul's, but this was a revelation to us - so much history packed into the streets around it. We loved the museum by the Guildhall, and fab place to finish, at the Thames. Thanks!"
