We have oft heard that stock prices follow a random walk. In case not, see below -http://www.chicagobooth.edu/faculty/selectedpapers/sp16.pdf
We'd like to relive this debate differently. Throw in some liberal arts majors, a Friday evening, chaperoning by a trained historian, and more than 2,000 years of history and you've got yourself an experience to remember - a Random Walk through London's famous square mile.
A tour around the historic city, culminating in a historical pub, where you can appreciate camaraderie, both historic and new-found.
Selected highlights of the walk include -
- The Roman remains and the early history of London
- The Bank of England
- London's first coffee house
- The Royal Exchange
- Lloyds of London
- Coat of arms of the City
- London and trading
- The Livery Halls
- Leadenhall Market
- Mansion House
