Top attractions

The City, also known as the ‘Square Mile’ is not only London’s business hub, it’s where London began. A place of fascinating contrasts where the ruins of a Roman Amphitheatre and Bathhouse sit alongside modern architectural giants like the ‘Walkie Talkie’ building, home to Sky Garden.

Walk in the footsteps of Shakespeare, explore some of London’s most popular attractions such as The Tower of London, Tower Bridge and St Paul’s Cathedral, discover the stories of London and its people at Museum of London or step into Guildhall Art Gallery for some world-class art in an oasis of peace.

And other things to do

Scattered throughout the City there are plenty of hidden gems and lesser known landmarks including historic pubs, churches, public artworks and green spaces to discover through fascinating walks and itineraries, all within one Square Mile. The City also offers a variety of places to eat, shopping locations and hotels, for all tastes and budgets.
