The City of London is concentrated into just one square mile. Within this area you will find a wealth of museums and galleries, green spaces, cultural venues, festivals, bars and restaurants, churches and shops.
The Square Mile has a long and fascinating history: the City of London itself is more than 800 years old and, as well as being the financial capital of London, is full of traces of its unique heritage.
St Paul's Cathedral, Tower Bridge, the Millennium Bridge and "the Gherkin" are just some of the iconic landmarks that sit side by side in the City and reflect its vibrant and exciting atmosphere.
