It is a street in the City of London, the historic nucleus and modern financial centre of London. A public house called the Czar's Head used to stand at No. 48, so named because Peter the Great used to drink there when he was learning shipbuilding at Deptford. Somewhere on Tower Street in 1688, Edward Lloyd opened Lloyd's Coffee House, where the insurance market Lloyd's of London originated. Great Tower Street is home to a number of restaurants and offices, including the southern entrance to the London Underwriting Centre at the corner with Mincing Lane, and Plantation Place South. It formed part of the marathon course of the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
