City Locations

The oldest area and most historic area of London with settlements dating back to pre-Roman times The City of London was the original city surrounded by walls and many streets and areas are named after the long gone landmarks such as Moorgate, Bishopsgate and London Wall.  Whilst the area spread out of it’s original borders the name, The City of London, remained. The City of London is now home to the financial capital of Europe and is home to some famous institutions such as the Bank of England and Lloyds insurance company.

Whilst many historic buildings were destroyed during WWII some famously survived, such as St Pauls Cathedral, and so today the City is an exciting mix of the old and new.  Historic landmarks and buildings today rub shoulders with experimental modern sky scrapers, often given nicknames by the local such as The Gherkin, the Walkie-Talkie and the Cheesegrater.   The historic landmarks still make up a big part of the fabric of the City, giving the City it’s unique character and buildings such as St Pauls Cathedral and the Tower of London and Tower Bridge always draw tourists into the area.

As more people choose to live in the City now the area also has a very lively social scene.  Some areas of the City area have become just as much a destination for nightlife as the West End and Shoreditch in the east of the City is one of the most vibrant, trendy areas to see and be seen in.
