The 1980s was an important period for the City of London which saw a royal wedding, deregulation of the banks and the City's first and only female Lord Mayor. Princess Diana in her fairytale wedding dress ascending the steps of St Paul's, LIFFE Traders in colourful blazers in front of the Royal Exchange and shiny new towering skyscrapers of commerce are all vivid images of the period. On this walk you will explore the architecture, the personalities and the events that defined the City of London in the 1980s.
