City of London

The City is a uniquely rich mix of ancient and modern. Its archaeological layers are a mix of Roman, Saxon, Medieval and the ash of the Great Fire in 1666. The ancient walls have contained the City throughout its history so that today it remains an eminently walkable place. It’s plan retains many traces of streets and alleys from the first and 12th centuries yet its is Europe’s Fin-Tech business capital.

It is recognised around the world for landmarks such as St Paul’s Cathedral, Tower Bridge, and the Gherkin. This contrasting mix of architecture from all ages, with medieval churches and Roman remains next to modern skyscrapers, the uniquely dense Square Mile is home to no less than 48 churches – many of them designed by Sir Christopher Wren as part of the Square Miles’ recovery from the Great Plague and Fire.
