I’m sorry folks, but the Guildhall Guides have asked me to remove this article.

They say they get enough visitors from other places, and it seems they don’t want you to visit if you got the information from ianVisits.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    What an outrageous response from them.

  2. Kirk Susong says:

    How bizarre. Feels like there’s an interesting story to be uncovered here. Why would they care from what source interested visitors got the info? Why would they want to reduce visitor numbers in this way? Why IanVisits in particular?

    How odd…Are we too classy for them, those snobs?
    When I am in London again this June spreading my American money about I shall be sure to stop and steal something from the shop there.

    I would posit that they don’t like the type (and volume) of attendees who are brought in from a popular website such as this.
    I specifically came back to this article to check the dates for booking. I’ll be giving it a miss.

  5. Deborah Rutter says:

    Presumably they’re getting ‘backhanders’ from others. Sod ‘em. We’ll take our money elsewhere.

  6. Janet Slater says:

    That’s the City of London for you!
    Elitist and exclusionary

  7. Neil Le Milliere says:

    Bizarre! You’d have thought the City of London would welcome the publicity,

  8. Paul says:

    A very strange reaction. I visited the Guildhall Art Gallery and Roman amphitheatre a couple of years ago. I remember that when I went in I was asked where I’d heard about the gallery and told them it was on Ian Visits. They said they’d never heard of the site but would take a look at it and seemed happy to have the free publicity. Maybe they didn’t like me and it’s all my fault…
