London: The City of London Neighbourhood Guide
London: The City of London (Financial District) Neighbourhood Guide
The City of London (or just ‘The City’) is an area located right in the centre of London itself. Having been founded by the Romans as Londinium about 2000 years ago, The City has morphed into the financial heart of London and the world.
The City is unusual in that less than 10,000 people live in the area, yet over 500,000 work there.
The City suffered many disasters over the years, including The Great Plague and The Great Fire of London and is filled with fascinating historical sites in every direction you look, including St. Paul’s Cathedral, The Monument and the nearby Tower of London.
Many museums are also dotted around this area.
