Our City Information Centre by St Paul's Cathedral helps visitors make the most of their visits to the capital.

The Square Mile is one of the great cultural hubs of London, much visited from all around the world, with a wealth of things to see and do and a vibrant mix of artistic activity. 

As the historic heart of London, since Roman times, there are echoes of the past all around and the heritage can be experienced in streets, buildings, churches, museums and galleries.

The City Corporation is a major funder of culture and heritage, and is keen to welcome and encourage visitors, who help to boost the local economy.

The City Corporation supports a range of arts institutions, including:

It helps bring the streets to life every year through a vibrant programme of outdoor events, including Spitalfields Music, and Sculpture in the City.

Its stewardship of London's history is seen in the Museum of London and London Metropolitan Archives, and it is also the custodian of The Monument, Keats House, and Tower Bridge. The roots of London's past can also be seen in the Roman Amphitheatre beneath Guildhall, which has been the centre of City administration for centuries.
