The Editor's pick:

Wednesday 7 December HOW LONDON BECAME THE GREATEST CITY ON EARTH 4/6 THE COURSE offers art history lectures, guided museum visits and London walks.

In this series of 6 lectures and 6 accompanying walks we will show HOW LONDON BECAME THE GREATEST CITY ON EARTH

More than any other country on the planet, Britain has pooled its constitutional, financial and cultural forces within its capital. This 6 part series of lectures and 6accompanying walks will explore how, over 2,000 years, London has dealt with six of those forces: the monarchy; the law; religion; finance; entertainment; and education. The story of the Reformation, of constitutional monarchy, of Shakespearean theatre, of the public school, of the common law, the story of Britain.... They can all be told through London's unique collection of buildings.
