The City of London is also known as the Square Mile, the financial district and historic centre of London.
The City is the area of London that originally lay within the ancient city walls. This part of Central London is not as big a tourist destination as the West End, Westminster or South Bank, but is a must for anyone wishing to explore and understand London.
London is a global leader in banking and financial services, so the city of 8.7 million residents attracts a steady stream of business travelers. With 43 universities -- the highest concentration of higher education in Europe -- it's popular with international students and scholars.
The City of London is home to some of London’s most popular attractions, including Tower Bridge, The Tower of London, St Paul’s Cathedral and the Museum of London. Notable buildings in the area include the Gherkin, 30 St Mary Axe and The Cheese grater at 122 Leaden hall Street. A great place to dine out, The City is crammed full of upscale eateries and celebrity chef restaurants. If you have cash to splash, go shopping at the historic Leaden hall Market or Old Spitalfields Market. If you choose to stay in The City, you’ll find accommodation to suit all tastes and budgets.
The City is the world's leading centre of international finance. In British parlance, The City often refers to the financial sector, just as Americans might refer to Wall Street. This area contains 255 foreign banks, which is more than any other financial centre. It also is home to the Bank of England and houses other institutions such as Lloyds and the London Stock Exchange. Every weekday approximately three hundred thousand workers come into the City to work in small and large business and financial institutions.
