Nick RobinsHere is what Nick has to say about the walk - 'The Company had profound impacts at home, not least its own stock market bubble and bail-out. It resulted in the conquest of India, the Boston Tea Party in the Americas and the opium wars with China. We'll visit the Company's main sites in London, and see how politicians, painters, playwrights and poets reacted to the greatest corporation in the world.'
